Since I updated the latest software on 2/2/12, Office For Mac doesn't work correctly. I can not open Excel or Word documents from Office. I cannot save a newly created document. However, I can open an exsisting document by going to the hard drive and double clicking the document I need. I can't save changes I make to the document once opened.
I only have TWO documents left over from my PC days and I cannot open them. I originally created them by using Microsoft Works, their Excel spreadsheet. I have tried everything, that I know of and cannot open them. What solution is there? I tried Open Office and that did not work.
When I start my computer up, programs such as excel, word and powerpoint and calender will open up automatically. One day it will open up powerpoint and excel and other days just word and excel, its very random. I tried to find the setting to stop this and cannot
I just upgraded my operating system and added more memory to my imac. Word and Excel cannot be used with Lion. How do I delete these from my computer and is there a way to make sure I am optimizing the space on the hard drive?
When I try to open a Word document I receive the following message "Word cannot open this document. The document might be in use, the document might not be a valid Word document, or the file name might contain invalid characters (for example, /)."

Suddenly I'm not able to open any MS Word 2004 docs because I keep getting the message "There is not enough memory or disk space to run the converter EPS Import". There is over 78 GB (out of 148) of memory left on the HD and I haven't installed or changed anything at all. I've done a Disk Verification in Utilities (grasping at straws?) and all is well. I'm working with Mac OS X 10.4.11 and MS Word 2004.
How the heck to I stop Lion from launching old docs when I open a new doc in MS Word, Excel, Preview, etc? I HATE this feature. Twice now I've edited the wrong document because when I click on a new Word doc, one that I worked on last automatic pops up on top of it. This is a ridiculous feature! Also, I don't need photos that I looked at yesterday magically opening when I open a new photo in Preview. That can be embarrassing if is someone is looking over my shoulder, if you know what I mean. Do I need to make sure I close all old docs instead of just quitting. Is there a way to just turn this frustrating auto open feature off?
I have some MS word documents on my MacBook (intel) that I'd like to transfer to my white iBook. I tried plugging an enternal HD into the iBook (that HD contained the docs) but the iBook said that the HD wasn't compatible with it. So I went back on my MacBook and transfered the files from the HD to a memory stick.
However when I plugged that in and tried to open the files, MS word opened but the file did not. The word files are Word 2007 and on the iBook is an older OS9 version of Word. The iBook has Mac OSX panther on it, but the MS word opens in "classic mode". Any ideas on how I can get the docs to open on the iBook?
I am new to Mac so bear with me. I am running Microsoft Office for Mac 2004. I run a Nascar league and have 36 separate spread sheets for each race. They are all stored in a folder in my documents, just like when I had a PC. The problem is that when I try to open the sheet from documents folder by double clicking it the header or toolbar for excel opens but not the spread sheet. The only way I can get the spread sheet to open is by clicking on the open folder symbol on the toolbar and then a pop up window appears that looks like finder, and then I have to choose the file again.
Why can't you just open the file from documents folder.
Also when I attach the spreadsheet to an email, then double click the attachment on the email, the spreadsheet won't open either. I have asked the guys in my one to one class and none of them seem to know what the problem is. One teacher suggested to re-install Office,
Excel is opening closed files from prior sessions when I log into my Mac Pro on Lion. I want excel to launch at log in, but I don't want it opening a lot of files that I have no interest in and since they are big, they take a lot of time to open. I haven't been able to find the setting that will eliminate this problem. Does anyone have any information about whether there is a setting or whether this is "a Feature"?
I run Microsoft Office on my MacBook Pro. I routinely "print" Word documents to .pdf files. My conversions to .pdf are now resulting in two .pdf documents rather than one multipage document. For example, a two page Word document about puppies would be converted Puppies and Puppies.2 rather than just one 2-page .pdf file. A 14-page file just also saved as two separate .pdf files; the first was only one page, and the second contained the other 13 pages. This is a new problem as of tonight; I've never previously had any difficulty. It's quite frustrating, and I can't seem to determine the cause.
Does anyone else have problems copying figures (charts) made in Excel into Word? When I copy the figures into Word, they appear ok on a MAC, but when viewed on a PC, the y-axis disappears. I am using Office 2004
Yesterday morning I was using MS Word and Excel and they were fine but then I closed my computer and opened it 15 minutes later and they wouldn't launch. I made additional space available on my drive (90GB now) and ran Disk Warrior to fix permissions and check the hard drive. Today I am still having hte problem. I was able to get Word to open up a blank document but then it immediately crashed. I am trying to figure out if I can solve this without having to reinstall as my installation disks are several years old and I don't have them with me. I am running OS X version 10.5.8 on a MacBook Pro 5,1 My error message for excel is the following:

I am contemplating upgrading my MacBook Pro (2011 model) from Snow Leopard to Lion. I am concerned about the level of strong criticism about Lion, especially the comments that MS Word and Excel (and Powerpoint?) cannot run in Lion. What is the full story? Can I run MS Office products by reloading them into Lion environment?
