  • 1. Excel unresponsive/won't open
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I am the 'administrator' on my computer. Excel opens fine for my husband, the other user. I set up a new user as a test, and excel opens fine for that, but suddenly not for me. I've run disk utility (permission repairs), reinstalled the application, run virus checks. Word was doing the same thing and I copied it from the other user and now it works, I think (maybe it's quit by now), but Excel wouldn't cooperate. I hope someone can answer in relatively simple English because the complex answers in other forums in computerese don't help me much.
  • 2. reinstalling - problems!
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) I bought my Office for Mac in May 08 online. Have installed the applications successfully on my Macbook - about a week after I had done this the hard disk of the laptop crashed. Now I've got a new MacBook Pro, and although I've got the product keys that I received once bought the applications, I don't have the original download file and now cannot get the applications up and running on the new laptop! I've also subscribed to another free 30day trial, and even that I don't for some reason seem to be able to activate on my new laptop - tells me the keyd in information is wrong although I am copying the activation key from the confirmation email. Please help, what do I need to do to activate the purchased applications on my current laptop?
  • 3. Install disc is scratched - can I download the installation anywhere?
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel Hi there, I bought an edition of Office 2008 with 3 licenses. I've installed it on my laptop and want to install it on my desktop, but the disc has become scratched and doesn't work properly (please don't ask me to fix it with toothpaste!!) Is there a way to download the installation files? I have legitimate license keys - but no disc. Thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, Andrew
  • 4. Running Office 2008 for Mac on 2 Computers
    I have two Macintosh computers network together. I would like to know if I purchase Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition and install it on both computers, will my wife and I be able to use this software at the same time on both computers? As an example, if my wife is using Excel on one computer and I want to use Word on the other computer, will we both be able to do that at the same time? I heard that only one of us will be able to use the Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac Special Media Edition software at a time. Is this true and will I need to purchase two copies of this software?
  • 5. Office 2001 & 2008 Running Simultaneously
    I have two Macintosh computers network together. If I have Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac and Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac installed on both computers is it possible to use Microsoft Office 2001 on one computer and Microsoft Office 2008 on the other computer simultaneous?

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
