  • 1. Unable to use two licences on two linked computers
    Hey all, I have OS10.4.9 in my business mac network, and I installed Office X on the server and the reception computer. Initially it was the same licence and as others have described, I could not use both programs at the same time. However to improve our office efficiency, I bought a new copy of Office X today, and installed it. However it still won't let me use both versions at the same time even though now I have two licences! Why is this? The Microsoft website is not forthcoming, and they don't have any help lines to call. I can't find anywhere to input my new product key, so maybe it still thinks I have the same version, but I don't have anyway of finding this out either. Please help. I'm rather frustrated. Cheers, Chris
  • 2. Valid CD key not accepted after installation
    I had to format my G4 PowerBook (running Tiger) and reinstall everything. After using my original 2004 Office CD to reinstall Office X, I entered my 20-digit CD key in the MS Office X Setup Assistant that pops up when first opening an Office application. Result is error message: "The CD Key that you entered is not valid. Make sure you entered the CD Key Correctly." After re-entering about 10 times to no avail, I talked with MS tech support. He was kind enough to tell me it is a VALID CD key, but can't help me beyond pointing me to their online support. The only pertinent post there tells me to make sure not to mix up B's and 8's (I think I know the difference). End of story: unless someone knows how to get around this, I'm STUCK with a VALID copy of Office X and no way to use it! What good does it do to have a CD KEY and product ID if the software maker won't accept them???????
  • 3. Microsoft Office 2004 unable to print
    I have a problem that has only cropped up today. For some reason all Office 2004 programs are unable to print. I can print from any other program, but not from Office. When you attempt to print the print dialog will come up, but will be unable to show anything in Quick Preview. If you hit print you get an error message indicating "Word cannot print due to a problem with the current printer. Make sure you have a printer selected in Print Center. You may need to print again or adjust your printer settings." I have tried deselecting Quick Preview in the print dialog and it makes no difference. I have also checked to see if you can get a print preview by selecting Print Preview instead of Print. You can see the page image in Print Preview, but cannot print, same error. I have tried saving to PDF from the print screen with the same results. I have uninstalled Office 2004 using the Remove Office tool, including removing all preferences, and then reinstalling Office from cd. The new version had the same problems as the old. I have used Printer Setup Repair to check and repair my permission settings and delete all printer preferences. This did not affect printing in Office. I have checked and Office, including the newly installed version, is updated through 11.3.4. I am at a loss on what might be causing printing to not function in Office, when it functions in every other program. Has anyone come across this problem before?
  • 4. Custom Installation for Office Mac 2004
    I'm new to Mac and just purchased a new iMac and ordered Office 2004 Student Edition. Does anyone know if I can just install Excel? That is all I really need. From reading these boards, it sound like since I use Office 2007 at work and Office XP at home any files on the Mac are not yet compatible with my pc versions? Also, I ordered my iMac with 2gb of RAM. Will this run Excel smoothly? I have no intention of installing boot camp or parallels. I didn't even want the Office, but I need excel. Thanks in advance.

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,

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,

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
