  • 1. Upgrade from bundled Office Test Drive
    My father-in-law has an iMac he purchased last year. The 30-day Office Test Drive has long expired and he's now contemplating purchasing Office 2004. It appears that one must have _licenced_ version of an Office app in order to _upgrade_ vice install a full-up version. I also note that he'll need to remove the Test Drive folder prior to install of the new software. He's looking to me for some assistance and I'm thinking that he'll need to purchase the full-up version. Any thoughts and/or advice would be much appreciated. -Will
  • 2. Macbook Bug opening Word Docs
    I have a Macbook and I installed Office 2004 Professional Edition. I have hundreds of Word docs saved in folders on my desktop, most of which came from my old Powerbook via Firewire (my old Powerbook had the previous version of Word, but that shouldn't be a problem, right?). Whenever I try to open a Word doc from the desktop by double-clicking on it, I get an error message that the operation cannot be completed (error code 10660). In order to open any Word docs I need to first open Word, then go file: open, however this only works for some documents (mostly smaller ones it seems); others cause it to freeze up completely and then I need to force quit. I ran Software Update and installed Mac OS 10.4.7. This did not fix the problem. I uninstalled Office and then re-installed it. This did not fix the problem. Since the updates I am now getting two problems: either I get the error message immediately upon trying to double-click on any Word doc from a folder on the desktop, OR it goes so far as to begin opening the document in Word but then I get a Word error message saying "Word cannot open this document. This document may be in use or might not be a valid Word document." The guy at AppleCare had never heard of this problem and presumed it was a problem on the Word side of things (big surprise).
  • 3. Suddenly envelopes won't print
    I am using Office X on a Mac G-4 running OSX 10.4.7 When I upgraded to 10.4.7, Mail Merge stopped printing envelopes correctly on my Brother HL 1270-N. Instead of recognizing my central feed into the printer, the program assumes top or bottom feed. This effectively removes the addressee's address. XXXX@XXXXX.COM
  • 4. copying Arabic into Word document on Mac
    I am trying to copy and paste an Arabic word from the web into a multi-lingual Word document on my Mac but am having terrible trouble. It always comes out either backwards (left-right) or with the letters not correctly joined up (an Algerian colleague tells me). I have tried making the web page I am copying from into a PDF first, but doesn't help. Any advice greatly appreciated. Michael
  • 5. Office Mac 2004 Student & Teacher edition
    Hi I have this software which I bought and installed about six months ago on my three computers (one is a laptop). No trouble until now when my laptop died so I had to copy all of my laptop files over to one of the desktops which already had Office Mac 04 installed on it. I've now cleaned it up and the desktop only has one version on it. Even though we have three product keys and only two working computers it won't allow us to use Mac 04 on any other computer (only on one). How do I fix this? Thank you.

can't save files in subfolders using Word

Postby taylorgriffin » Sat, 18 Nov 2006 14:07:16 GMT

I'm running Word on a Mac running OS X.  When I go to save a file in
Word, it only gives me the option to save in the root files like
"Documents" or "Applications."   How do I save the file into a
subfolder?  On a PC, I would double click to open the folders until I
got to the folder I needed.  That doesn't work here.  Can someone help?
 I'm sure this is something obvious I'm missing.

Thanks -
Taylor

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,




Click the blue triangle next to (to the right of) the Save As inputbox. 
Office uses standard MacOS dialogs for saving. Clicking the triangle 
will open a navigation pane on the Save As dialog.

2.Word 2003: File-Save As- not displaying subfolders

Hi,
  When trying to do a File->Save As to a network drive, I drill down to a 
subfolder and should see 50 or so subfolders to save a file in.  I do not see 
these subfolders.  I go to Windows Explorer and see them fine.  Another 
directory structure on the same network drive displays all the subfolders in 
it's tree just fine -- just not this one.  I couldn't tell any difference 
(and it has worked in the past -- not sure what changed).  Any ideas as to 
why the subfolders don't display in the "File - Save As" "Save In:" aren't 
being displayed?

thanks,
 Greg

3.unable to save in Word using "file -save" or "file - save as"

In the last couple of days, I have been unable to save in Word using - File, 
save or File, save as. The system snarls up with the egg timer displayed 
until I end this by pressing the cross in right hand corner of screen. This 
is the only operation I am allowed to do. I send error messages to Microsoft.

4.[AoE II] I can't save/test a scenario using AI file :^(

Hello

Using the AoE II's scenario editor, I have this message when I test/save
a scenario that use an AI file :
Could not load "TRIBE_World :: save_scenario_main because it is an
incompatible version"
Report this problem to the publisher 

No response until now :^(

I tried AoE II (1.03 French version) under MacOS 9.1 and MacOS X 10.2
and AoE II 1.05 (the 1.03 French version with the 1.05 updater) under
the same MacOS versions with the same problem.
But I can use all scenarios and all AI files selected from the random
game selector ("Jeu standard" in french) without any problem. So I don't
think the problem is with the scenario/AI files.
The AI files I tried come from the Web, the AoE II Cd and from me with
the same results :^(

Any idea ?
(Is there a French 1.05 Updater ?)
Regards
