  • 1. older iBook- bought Office MAC v.X and it's an upgrade!
    Version: v.X Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) What can I do about using a Office MAC v.X upgrade when there was no Application for Microsoft when I bought the iBook used. The iBook is in great condition and I only needed Word and Maybe Excel. But the edition I bought on line turns out to be an upgrade only. What can I do next? Emilia
  • 2. printing issues
    Version: v.X Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Power PC Files created in Office v.X on my G5 print fine (word, excel and PPT) to all three printers in my office. One USB printer and two networked. Also, files created on other Macs and PCs and emailed to me printed fine. Recently, any emailed office files sent to me will not print. These range from office 2008 Mac to PC office files. These were printing fine but now won't print at all. After clicking on print, the progress bar speeds across the screen and then nothing. I checked Page setup, printer selection in print dialog. Uninstalled Office suite and reinstalled it, deleted the printers and reinstalled them, and fixed permissions. I have resaved the files with different names, copied and pasted into new docs, and saved as lower versions of word to no avail. Nothing seems to help. However, if the file is started from scratch on the G5, they print. Any thoughts on what might be causing this. This is happening to word, excel and PPT files and all from different users. There is no one common element in all the files. I originally thought a font might be the culprit but after doing some testing I don't believe that is the cause. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, marc
  • 3. Unable to get past Microsoft AutoUpdate
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I recently received Mac Office 2008 from my University, and installed it. As I attempted to open Excel (Though it does this with every application I attempt to use) It prompts me with Microsoft AutoUpdate. It had an initial update, which I installed. I opened Excel again, and Update popped up again. I chose Manual, hit 'Check for Updates', and it said no updates are available. But it keeps going BACK to the update, and when I hit X, it closes everything and I start back at square one with it opening the AutoUpdate. grrr. I can't get past it!! Theres nothing to update, but it still doesn't open!
  • 4. attaching pdfs to document
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Can someone please educate me on how to attach a pdf into a document (report)? Thank you.
  • 5. Compatability of Powerpoint 2008 with 2004
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I "upgraded" to Office 2008 and am having problems viewing Powerpoint slides that I created with 2004 version previously even though they are saved as 2004. Some images are blank or blacked out. In one case, when I replaced the images and then sent the presentation to a colleague who uses MAc with Office 2004 it was fine on his computer but when he sent back to me, again images were blank or black. I need to exchange files frequently with people using the older version so it will not be adequate to just fix this one presentation. Please help@

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
