unable to print Word or Excel from Office X for Mac 2008

Q: unable to print Word or Excel from Office X for Mac 2008

Everything worked fine until a few days ago when I couldn't print a worksheet from Excel. I tried printing from Word and that failed too. I can print with no trouble from other applications. My printer is Epson Stylus C62 and Excel and Word are from Microsoft Office X for Mac 2008. The following happens in Word but not Excel: after attempting to print various commandx available before become unavailable - they are greyed out.

My Mac OS is Version 10.6.8

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Not sure what's going on with my pc, but when I do the following, the programs just freeze. And when I try to close them, it says "Not Responding."

MS Word & Excel:
It freezes if I try to open an existing file
If I create a new file, and click File + Print or File + Print Preview, it freezes

Open Office Writer:
It freezes any time I try to print

I sure hope I don't have some kind of virus.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I used to have Works and I used it to print envelopes. Now I have Office Word 2003 and cannot get an envelope to print.

I type in my return address, for envelopes where I just want a return address, and I pick the picture that shows the envelope with the front down and the flap pointing to the right. That's how I put my envelope in the printer.

Then I click Print and the envelope goes about halfway in and stops. I click on the X on my HP printer to make it come out and it does, blank.

How can I get an envelope printed in MS Office Word 2003?

Thanks.

Just recently one of my computers decided it wasn't going to print excel or word documents. I received an e-mail with an excel table attached and tried to print it. The print box opens ok and the printer starts after I click print, but when the printer is done there is no ink on the page. The same happened when I copied the excel table to a word doc. I tried to print from an original excel doc I created as well as a word doc and the same thing happens. I am able to print fine from other programs and a test page prints fine too. I deleted the driver and reinstalled from XP as the printer's site says to use the XP driver. Is there a setting in Windows office or in XP that I need to set? Have run out of ideas.

Looking like Adobe is proving hard to print also.

A:Can print from Word on Windows 10 but not from Excel. Any ideas please

Are you able to print in other applications using your printer without facing issues? You mentioned Adobe?

Reinstall the printer to see if it works.

Update printer drivers.

Change the default printer and check if the issue persists.

Check Device Manager for issues.

I help the local Pop Warner football league with their computer needs.
I use their machine to print mailing labels for their kids. It has worked fine until recently. Now when I attempt to import the Excel info to Word to print the labels I get an out of memory message and the program shuts down.

Using a Dell Demension celeron w/ 256 meg mem. Office 2K
Any ideas on a fix?
 

A:Excel/Word out of memory on label print

How exactly are you importing the Excel info to Word? Maybe you have an Excel list of the addresses and you've made this the data source for a mailmerge in Word.

For mailing label jobs, I always stick with just one application (Word) rather than having 2 separate apps "communicating" (or trying to).

If you are using an Excel list as a mailmerge data source, I'd recommend that you copy it into a fresh Word doc (as formatted text, so that it becomes a table) and then base the mailmerge on that instead.

Hi,

I installed novaPDF Lite 7 and tried converting a word file to pdf. It did'nt work but since then I have been facing issues with printing word documents through my laser printer.

The 'Print' dialog does not open on pressing Ctrl+P and when i do a quick print i get the error message attached first as Word Error Message - 01. Whereas, I am able to open the 'Print' dialog box in excel or other office applications and print documents.

Also, when i try clicking any word file from Start Menu>Recent Documents, i am getting the error message attached second as Word Error Message - 02.

Have checked my default printer settings. Have uninstalled novaPDF; still no luck and for some reasons system restore is also not able to restore to any date prior to the installation.

the program is excel or word... all drivers are installed, word has been uninstalled & reinstalled - so has the epson drivers
so, the only problem is printing with the epson ? connected via usb-default printer, the only printer as well....

A:excel & word 2007 takes 5 mins to print-sometimes 'not responding'...

hello hixx,

The first printer prints well, but the epson takes a long time from what I gather. I just want to say that word/excel becoming "unresponsive" during these printing problems is normal, and is not reflective of problems within those programs. It just means it is taking too long a time to gather information or find the device. It could be the wrong driver for the printer. Did you install the most recent 32 bit driver for it?

Also, within the printing preferences, you can select an option to 'optimize for speed' and/or select print quality as high speed in order to print more quickly.

Under Printer properties, there should be an option to spool print documents, and find an option to "print immediately". See if this helps.

Hi, I am having some wierd problems with my Office XP. Whenever I open files in Excel, it usually hangs. 10 minutes later it will look ok and it will let me do a couple of things but then it will hang again, and usually not recover. Sometimes it does. The cause of the hanging is intermittent, but the result is usually the same; it just sits there and I get a white screen with the "not responding" bar along the top of the window. It will effect other excel files that are open at the moment as well. It is also happening with Internet Exploder and Word, but not as much.

Anyone have any idea of what this could be? Thanks in advance.

First I would recommend reinstalling the Office Suite all together and downloading any updates that go with it. If that doesn't work, I would start looking at which programs you have that have built in Office Add-ons. Some of these add-on capabilities have been known to cause massive slowdowns in Office performance.

A:Office XP, Excel and Word on Vistas

An update to this- I just determined that by deleting normal.dot it will allow Word to start.
However the problem is that whenever Word, Excell, or Powerpoint try to open a file it freezes up. Word at startup loads normal.dot apperantly, so this is why word freezes immediately. But if I delete normal.dot, I can start and use word fine, except for loading. Once I close word, it creates normal.dot, and then next time I try to start it, it won't work.

What on earth could be causing office to not be able to load a saved file?
I have verified that the files being saved are legitimate, by opening them on a different computer.

If you're using office 97, according to microsoft, one possibility is that outlook is journalizing your other office documents. They say to start outlook and under tools / options / journal clear all the check boxes under 'also record files from' list. They say this can cause files to close slowly even if outlook isn't running.

Hello

do you remember when you install the (system mechanic) ?

if to you can do this a long as you dont have the system restore turned of on your system

steps

start
select ( all programs
select (accessories
select ( system tools
select ( system restore

now you will be given the option to ( restore to a specific date or create a restore point

select (restore to a specific point

now a window will open with a calender on it

select a date that was befor you installed the (mechanic

then do the restore / now this may fix your issue and it may not

this is the issue with useing programs like this / they normally just make things worse or kill your system

hope it works for you

Hi,What's your Operating System.What size is your drive, how much memory do you have and how much free space is available.What is your printer make and model.What steps have you taken by reference to the first error message?Have you uninstalled and reinstalled the laser printer driver.i) Checked my default printer settings.When you select print, in Word, is your printer shown as the default printer or is it stuck on something else, like NovaPDF, (even though you say you have uninstalled this), capture fax or one of the other 'printers' in the list.As regards the second error message, you may have to reassociate your word documents, to enable youto open them from the folders.As regards system restore, it can be a problem if you are short of hard disk space.Is your Anti-virus scanner up to date and have you run any malware and / or spyware scans recently;you may have picked up some kind of infection.

In both Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, when I do a "File, Open" command, a box comes up showing the contents of the last directory I used. If I then attempt to use the drop down from this box to navigate to a new directory, it takes 65 seconds before the drop down list appears, and then another 30-40 seconds before the drop-down menu responds to my request for a new directory.

I have uninstalled and re-installed Microsoft office, and I have run the "detect and repair" option in the help menu. Nothing seems to fix the problem. I have no idea why this is happening or what Microsoft Office is doing during those 65 seconds to produce the drop down list and during the following 30-40 seconds to navigate to a requested directory in the drop down list.

I do not have this problem with other applications such as Lotus 123.

Any ideas?

Hello,

Great Forum. Wonderful, knowledgeable folks.

Had to re-format HD, and seems to be working now.
But for how much longer, who knows.

On the old setup, I had MS WORD and Excel.
Many existing files of both.

I only have, if I remember right, 2 or 3 downloads allowable/available from the
Student Edition of them that I purchased a while ago.

So, I don't want to use up what is left on my present PC, as I have real doubts about it lasting much longer.

I heard about Open Office, and that it is free, and "completely" compatible with the MS equivalents. True ? Or,... ?

Is this what I want ?
Are there "better" free ones tghat would work very well with my existing WORD and Excel stuff ?
If so, suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

Not sure where to post this, but in the last month Office Word & Excel 2007 have slowed down and progressed to "not responding". Cut & paste are virtually "cut and wait 5 minutes" and maybe it will appear properly.

I have check for viruses with Malwarebytes and AVG and have used Spybot, also. I have also ran MS Diagnostics. Everything seems to be in order.

I am using Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 2.

I know this problem has been ongoing for several years, but this is first time I've had to deal with it and MS Support is as usual not helpful.

Would appreciate someone else's clear mind as mine as become muddled trying to remedy the problem.

After the transfer, Excel files will only open when accessed from Excel - otherwise, they try to open in Word. If I click on a file and select "open with," the only option is to open with Word.

You will recognise other Excel extensions in the same area which you might want to change in the same way.

I have searched various forums, including this one, so I'm not sure there is a way to resolve this problem.

Every time I start Excel or Word [Microsoft Office 2003 Pro] I have to rearrange my toolbars. When I start Excel [for example], I'll arrange my toolbars [including dragging them]. After I have them all moved where I want them, I'll use Excel and then shut the app down. When I restart Excel, the toolbars will no longer be in the places I moved them to earlier. I have to rearrange them every time!

Is there a way to lock the toolbars in MS Office 2003 Pro, specifically Excel and Word?

Thanks!

This is a question about the search functions within Microsoft Office Word 2007 and Excel 2007. I want to be able to do searches that would yield both “e” and “é” in the results of a single search. Right now all I can do is two separate searches.

My OS is Windows Vista. An example of what I'm looking for is a search that would bring up "cafe" and "café". It's probably either a way to ignore accent marks or a way to define searches for "e" as if they were searches for “e or é”.

Thanks very much for your help.

Greetings,

I'm a former IT Systems Technician, and my girlfriend is a work-from-home writer. I've recently migrated her PC's original processor and ram from an HP motherboard to an ASRock board, linking the original WD Caviar Blue 1TB drive to the board as a secondary drive to collect documents and storage from, while running Windows 8.1 (up to date) on a Seagate Barracuda 250GB for the main OS and programs drive.

With those specs out there in the open, now it's time to get to the root of the problem.

As a work-from-home writer, my girlfriend depends on the ability to save her documents to Microsoft's OneDrive and upload them to her publisher, but with this error showing up, she cannot get them to save. I have never seen such a message in my many years of IT service, and I'm completely baffled.

I am the administrator... So now I turn to you guys for help.

I've tried numerous times to set up an Outlook acct in order to be able to email docs from Word. When I would click on mail, an outlook email window would open but "send" etc buttons don't work.

Today, I tried to intergrate Outlook to use my MSN Acct. That failed, too. Can't even get an email window to pop up in Word now.

I acquired my Office Word 2003 by downloading a 3-mo. trial version that came w/my new PC/Windows XP. Trial period is over and I have NOT converted to the full Office 2003 program.

Once Trail period expired, it's my understanding that not all Word functions are now available to me.

Could it be that being able to email from Word is one of the functions I lost?

Just started using a new workstation with Office 2010 installed by OEM. Everything worked fine for a few days, and then every time i attempt to open a Word file or Excel file i get the MS Office dialog box that states "please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office 2010". The dialog box stays visible for 30-45 seconds and then the program opens and works fine.

Ran a repair, four times, didn't fix it.

All of my research leads me to a solution of uninstalling and re-installing. I'm not buying that if everything worked fine for several days, that a bad install will make the program stop functioning properly.

I also noticed, while visiting help within outlook, that the product was still a trial version and not currently activated. I have entered the activation code numerous times with no luck.

Any suggestions? This is becoming extremely inefficient.

The only way I can get any MS office programs to open is to right click and choose the "open with" option. I check the box to Use as default, but they still won't open the next time.
I tried run > winword /r to reset word, but that didn't help either.
All the icons are the same, a little blue chemistry beaker.
In properties, the type of files say they are, "FFV files (docx), FFV files (xlsx), etc".
How do I get these files to open the normal double click way?

A:Excel and Word files will not open in Excel and Word

Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Start > Windows Control Panel > Programs > Programs & Features > Microsoft Office (version) > Change > Repair)?

Aside from that if the file types are "FFV files (docx), FFV files (xlsx), etc", that suggests you've installed some other software that has taken over the file associations. In that case, you might consider uninstalling that software; otherwise you'll need to reset the file associations, by right-clicking each Office file-type (docx, xlsx, etc.) and using Open With>Choose default program to re-associate them with the correct Office application.
