I'm getting a weird error when I try to open Microsoft Excel 2004. "You can't open the application "Microsoft Excel" because the Classic environment is no longer supported."
1. Excel used to work just fine (I'm not sure if I've used it since I upgraded to Leopard) 2. I've seen other people say on forums that the MS Office 2004 suite works fine with Leopard 3. As far as I know the Classic environment was phased out in Leopard, though I don't think I've ever used the classic environment 4. All my other MS Office Apps work
I'm not having much luck with google, hopefully it's a dumb configuration thing that I don't know about.
I was not having any problems until I updated my Safari to the latest version, 5.1.4. Now I can't get into any of my MS Office applications or my HP Director. I get a message saying "____ quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open the application again. This report will be sent to Apple automatically". But when I select 'Reopen' it keeps on returnng to that page which is filled with details that don't mean anything to me - lots of numbers and the repeated use of the word 'crash'. All I can do is select 'OK' which closes that box but doesn't open the apps.
Microsoft on Tuesday released stability and performance updates for Office 2004 and Office 2008 for Mac, both of which also patch vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to overwrite the contents of a computer's memory by using malicious code.
Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.5.1 Update
Aside from the security fix, Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.5.1 Update [14.5MB] also updates the Japanese postal code dictionary in Entourage and fixes an issue that causes Word 2004 to close unexpectedly when opening a document that contains a numbered list.
Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac 12.1.2 Update
The 12.1.2 update for Office 2008 for Mac [159.6MB] is more substantial, repairing a global issue that prevented all Office 2008 applications from running AppleScript scripts from the Script menu, while also delivering a number of individual fixes for Word, Excel and Entourage.
More specifically, Microsoft said Word should now launch more quickly and tables will no longer included random instances of bold text. Other changes improve the display of form fields and the reliability of headers & footers in the word processing application.
Meanwhile, Excel should now open spreadsheet files that contain invalid characters and see improvements to the overall performance of calculations. Number formatting for some international languages and stability when saving workbooks that contain PivotTable reports has also been improved.
One of the major focus areas for Entourage was to improve stability when using Microsoft Sync Services, Microsoft said. In particular, Tuesday's update fixes an issue that where all contacts in Entourage or in the Apple Address Book would be deleted and re-created when you use Microsoft Sync Services. It should also prevent duplication of events and other items in Entourage or in iCal.
Other changes to Entourage focused on improving junk mail filtering, recurring calendar events, time zone information, embedded images, and the reliability when Entourage establishes a encrypted channel.
Student Office 2008 deal
Earlier Tuesday, Microsoft said it has teamed with a select few Apple authorized resellers like Amazon.com to offer students up to 30 percent off its various Office 2008 productivity suites when they're purchased alongside a new Mac before September 8th.
The offer translates into $15 off Office 2008 Home and Student Edition, $80 off Office 2008 Standard Edition, and $150 off Office 2008 Special Media Edition..
Amazon is also offering between $50 and $200 rebates on Apple's entire Mac line through August 25th.
So here is my dilemma. I got a letter a few days ago from the college I am going to, and it included a list of requirements if we were bringing our own computer. One of the requirements was if we had a Mac, to have Office 2008. I have talked to a friend who is replacing her current Macbook with another Macbook later in the summer, and we decided that when she bought her Macbook, that we could split the price of Microsoft Office for Mac 2008. Now, should I just go ahead and continue on with the plan with my friend, or what? Is there a huge difference in Office 2004 and Office 2008?
I just used software updater this morning (Oct. 22,2010). Now when I go to open an excel file, it appears to open but doesn't. I can open up other excel files. Other people can open up this same file. I even had someone re-save file with new name, and it still won't open. If I open it directly from Entourage, it will open excel, but not the workbook. The workbook isn't hidden, as I've tried to print and unhide workbook, but it's acting as if there's no workbook open. I think this has something to do with the updated software from this week.
I'm on a MacBok Pro running OS X 10.6.8 and have Microsoft Office 2004. Suddenly ALL of the Office applications are giving me the error message that the applications have "quit unexpectedly."Â I get the message literally DOZENS of times, can't reopen the applications, and can't open any of my documents.Â
I'm trying to print an Excel 2004 .xls spreadsheet file where I'm using to record attendance for the class I teach. I have my main Column A with Rows A-X and it shows up fine, I imagine because there is content in the boxes.
But I also have Columns B-L and rows A-X with nothing in their cells, but when I print it, they won't print. I need these blank because I'll check them off if the child in the first column attended the lesson. How do I make it so my many blank cells will print as well?
In Excel 2004, I created a macro. I then deleted it using the Tools --> Macros... dialog box. I still get the message about enabling/disabling macros when I open the file. I have tried using the VBA Editor to delete it, but I don't see a "Module 1" (or anything else for that matter) that contains the macro.
I know I can turn off the macro warning in the preferences, but I'd rather figure out why I'm getting the message and get rid of it without turning off the macro warnings.
I have a MB Pro and run Office 2008 on it. I'm running OSX 10.5.8, but had the same thing occur on OSX 10.4.x so I believe its isolated to Office.
In Word, when I go File, Open the application hangs. It open the finder like window but it has a huge amount of columns and spans across at least ten screens. I have the spinning pin-wheel and the application reports as not responding. It does not happen when I do file, open recent.
I've just installed new Mac Leopard to my G5 (old version was Tiger), but the Microsoft Office Mac 2004 did not work: I could not print out any M.O. documents? I did google and found that MO Mac 2004 work with Leopard, but somehow not on mine!!
Since upgrading to Snow Leopard, MS Office 2004 for Mac v 11.5.5 keeps crashing MacBook 2Ghz 2Gb RAM. Frequently happens during simple Excel column totaling or Powerpoint formatting. No problems (yet) in Word. Previously worked without problem in Leopard. Please don't tell me to switch to iWork
I'm running office 2004 on my MBP. Normally I would just hit file, print, print to adobe PDF to convert to a PDF and everything worked fine. Now i'm getting an error message when I try to do this...anyone ever had this happen to them?
I am trying to upgrade Office 2004 to version 11.5.6. I am current in Office upgrades but when I try this upgrade the installer hangs and I get the "not responding" message. I have tried both auto and manual installs and turned off and on the computer.
I have updated to lion and my office 2004 does not work. I need to buy and install office 2011. do I need to uninstall 2004 first? THe remove office application does not work as it requires power pc which is not supported by lion.
so i just got a new 24" imac (midrange) and after instaling the software updates, wanted to get office 2004 on it.
i installed it on my powerbook years ago, on my dad's imac last year, then again on the powerbook after i had to wipe the drive.
now i put it into the superdrive and it keeps on whirring over and over again without actually reading it. it ejects with some help. i put in other dvds and they worked fine. (i put the office dvd into my dad's imac and my powerbook and they were fine, ran setup assistant)
anyone know the problem here? new imac has a bad drive?
I updated to Lion os x and now can not use Microsft Office 2004, I cant open it or uninstall it, it just says powerPC applications are no longer supported.I have lost all emails on Entourage and can only retrieve emails via hostway that have been delivered today.
Trying to get help from Apple care is a nightmare as they need a serial number, which Lion being a digital download does not have one only web order number, which does not work when I put in serial box.
I am searching for a plugin, software or a solution for a situation I have with an Excel/Word Mail Merge.
It's a law firm we specialize in DUI/DWI and Reckless Driving defense. We subscribe to a data collection service that pulls data from various court systems around the state. We are then given this data by jurisdiction. The Excel files we receive come with 2 workbooks in one file for Traffic and Criminal arrests data with name, address, reason for arrest, etc, etc.
What I have been doing is opening each Excel file and copying and pasting into a new worksheet only grabbing the DUI and Reckless driving arrests because tis is all I am needing from the various files. I then save the new workbook and do a mail merge with Word from this newly created workbook.
Now my question is there such a plugin or software that will combine all the Excel files I receive from the Data collection house and then be able to filter out only the DUI and Reckless Driving arrests to a single Excel Workbook?
I am a new Mac user and am attemptiong to import clip art from the Microsoft Website (via Firefox).Evidently, you need to associate the file type ".cll" with the browser in order for it to open and allow it to be read in the Office application. Unfortunately, I don't know how to do this.The online help topic (from M$) doesn't mention Firefox, but gives instruction for IE and Netscape. The Netscape instructions are below, but I cant figure out if this is something I can do with Firefox...
======= To configure Netscape Navigator to open clips on Mac OS X
1. Start Netscape Navigator version 6.0 or later. 2. On the Netscape menu, click Preferences. 3. Click Navigator, and then click Helper Applications. 4. Click New Type, and then type the following information:
Description of type: Clip Art and Media File File extension: .cil MIME Type: application/vnd.ms-artgalry 5. Click Choose and browse for the Microsoft Clip Gallery program, usually located in the Office folder under your Microsoft Office installation folder. Click Open, and then click OK. 6. In the Preferences dialog box, click OK. 7. Close Netscape Navigator, and then restart it.
