Word/Excel documents won't open from folder

Q: Word/Excel documents won't open from folder

When I click on the name of Word document in a folder to open it, it hangs and then says "Not responding". (This just started happening.) I have the same problem with files in Excel and html (where I use Firefox).

However, I can open files fine if I go to Word and use File, Open.

For some reason, I can still use a folder to open PowerPoint and Adobe files.

I have Windows XP and use Office 2007.

I regularly scan my computer for viruses (with Norton) and for spyware (with SpySweeper) and haven't found any problems.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Preferred Solution: Word/Excel documents won't open from folder

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.)

A: Word/Excel documents won't open from folder

Hey Ray,

I had a similar problem which was probably different than yours, but here it is for your info. I couldn't access EXCEL or WORD. I would get a lock up and eventually a "can't open excel' message. The short of it was my NORTON had gotten corrupted and because it was set to scan those documents upon opening, it cause them to halt.

Maybe that tidbit will lead you somewhere. Good luck.

Hi,

Got a problem with Word and Excel 2007.

Both programs open ok (under 2 seconds), so no problems there.

The problem is opening the program by means of opening a document. It takes about 1 minute

Exactly the same thing with both Word and Excel.

Has anyone got a solution? Surely there must be a quick little registry tweak to sort this out?

Other info:
Outlook 2007 works ok, no delays
Windows XP works ok
No speed issues with computer
Did not previously have Office 2003
Word/Excel documents are local, computer is not on a network
Computer is free from spyware and viruses

Hi All,

I work on a web application that has Excel and Word documents in it.

At the moment when a user opens these documents in IE9 they get presented with a dialog box asking:

What do you want to do with "filename"?

The user is presented with Open, Save and Save As as the options.

Unlike previous versions of IE there is no check box to tick to remember the user's choice so it comes up every time.

I really need to get rid to this box. Does anyone know how to disable it?

Thanks

Tom

Unable to open Microsoft Office documents(excel,word) in Internet Explorer when we enforce strict TLS 1.2 protocol (Disabling SSL v2,SSL v3,TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1)on the webserver. We tested by removing strict TLS 1.2 and IE is able to open the document fine.
Error description : We see a Microsoft Excel Security Warning with the following content.
Certificate error
The application experienced an internal error loading the SSL libraries.

When we disabled SSL V2 and SSL V3, the document opens fine but when TLS 1.0 is disabled we are seeing the  pop-up with certificate error. We tried to open the reports in CSV format, 2007 format and 2003 format and all of them have the same issue. Does
Internet Explorer have any restrictions when TLS 1.2 is strictly enabled ?

Note : We are able to download the document using Internet explorer and the document opens fine from local but opening the document from the browser fails with certificate error.

A:Word documents into Excel

You may be able to save the word file to a tab-delimited text file and then import it into excel. When you import it, excel will ask you how to format it. I don't know the format of Avery labels, so I am not sure how well this will work. But, it might suffice.

My 2000 MS Word stopped opening the documents I have on file. The error message : "There was a problem sending the command to the program" keeps coming up after the document tries to open. I can create and save documents, but then cannot open them to view the content. This started after the removal of roaming defender spyware by SpyHunter software. I don't have any files blocked by SpyHunter and still have the issue with Word with SpyHunter deactivated.I am wondering if a file got removed in the spyware clean up and removal?

I am at work on one of the computers on their network. This machine is used my three or four people so how the problem started is just a guess. Word, Excel, Powerpoint all open with "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office 2000 SR-1 Professional." If I try to open any file I created in the past, the same thing happens. I thought I would run scanreg but apparently that command does not work. Lost, and my boss is too cheap to call in a tech, so I am stuck with no word processing. I am typing this on line however with the machine in question. Any ideas? Thanks. (The signature below is my machine at home)

I work mostly in Word, sometime Excel (MS Office Home and Business 2010). Sometimes, the recent documents window is pretty large, which is what I like. Other times, it's gone. To clarify, I reach that window by clicking File, and the list appears. I cannot figure out what causes it to disappear. I'd like it stay full of the documents I most often use. I have set the number of recent documents at 25.

So what am I doing to trigger clearing of the recent documents? Or is it a setting?

Thanks.

I have been making graphs on a daily basis on an excel spreadsheet and transferring the graph to a Word document so that I have months of daily graphs on word documents. I have now got an excel spreadsheet that seems to have linked itself to the word document I have opened to accept the daily graphs so that every time a new graph is drawn on the excel sheet all the previously drawn graphs for that month are altered to the latest graph (as would be the case if all the graphs were on the excel spreadsheet, a feature of excel that seems completely illogical to me as I can imagine no scenario where anyone would wish this to happen).
How can I unlink the spreadsheet and the word document?

Do you have Microsoft word installed? Go to your Start Menu and look through your programs for a folder named Microsoft, Inside should be a program called Microsoft Word. If not, than you need to buy Microsoft Word, or download Open-office, just google it. It is a free alternative to Word, and it can open word. If you do have word than when that prompt comes back up than select "select program from list" and choose Microsoft Word. Good Luck , without computer for 6 days will check back then .

Hi.

I have Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007. If I open two Word documents, I am unable to have both documents open for me to work on. One or the other is minimized on the task bar. Clicking the minimized document on the taskbar, minimizes the other document.

The same happens with two Excel documents.

I used to be able to work with two or more Word or two or more Excel documents.

I suspect I changed the settings somehow. If I did, I have no idea how to change it back.

Is the only way to do this save as again if you already have the document saved then put the password? Is there any issue with putting the same password for all these documents? Let say you have 100 documents that you want to password protect. Obviously you aren't going to have a password for each one right?


Also how does one password protect folders and pictures?


Is it true that if you put a password protect, then no one could open these documents up unless they have the password? I did read that one could open openoffice documents even without password protect.

A:Password Protect Openoffice Word and Excel Documents?

I have few issues with this. There is a folder that i have that has a bit of pictures. I put password protect on it. Now the folder looks like a winrar file which i believe is how its suppose to look. Issue is after i put in the password, it opens but issue is all the photos that are shown there... they are all lists. Is it possible to have the folder open up like it should normally? I put in the password so why does it not open up normally then. I have to click on each list item to see certain picture etc.
I also put a password on a certain picture thats in my picture folder. Thus that picture is put separately. So that 1 photo itself has the winrar image on it. And after i put password... it opens up but i still have to click on that list name image for it before it opens. Is there a way to prevent this? Like couldn't i see how the picture already looks after putting in the password?
And for both things. How do i cancel the password so it was the way it was before i put password protect? Cannot find an option to do this.

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.

I often need two documents open so that I can copy and paste between them, see any changes I'm making and compare the two. Having the two open at the same time is much more convenient than having to keep opening and closing them as I have to do in Windows7.

I tried some suggestions that I found on the internet, such as selecting the two documents and clicking, or using OPEN but in each case only one document opens.

I can open two of other types of files, such as PowerPoint shows, so it appears to be related to Word somehow.

I'm using Word 2003.

A:How do I open two Word documents in Windows7?

Word 2003 can't open the newer Word .docx format or Powerpoint presentations. It's been so long since I used it that I can barely remember its functions - but it may need to be installed in XP compatibility mode if you would like it to work properly in Windows 7...

Hello Charlene,

Try deleting the template. Close all instances of word.

Click Start > Search > all Files and Folders > type normal.dot

when the search results are found delete the listing(s) for normal.dot

Re-open MS Word.

If not you can try to repair it or reinstall it.

Using Windows 7 64-bit.

When I click a Word document in Explorer or on the Start menu, I get the error "There was a problem sending the command to the program". I'm using Word 2003, but I don't get this problem with Excel 2003.

I know that when I try to open a document this way, the program uses the command switches "/n" -- which means "open a new instance of Word", -- and "/dde" -- which I don't know what it means. I do know that I don't want the /n switch.

1) How can I remove the /n switch? Remember, I'm not clicking on a shortcut, but on a document icon. I know how to assign the "Open With" command, but I don't see any options about changing command-line switches.

2) Is the /dde switch causing my problem? How do I remove it?

Okay so you know my system details I have a Dell Studio XPS laptop with Vista Home Premium -bit on it and McAfee Security Center Now the problem When I first got my laptop and installed Microsoft Office Enterprise on it Word worked more or less fine One thing that was kinda weird from the beginning was the fact that sometimes and error message dialog box would pop up when I would double-click a word document to open that said something to the effect of quot can not find file quot on it I found that if I already had Microsoft Word open that the word document would Can not Microsoft open documents Word immediately open on the first double-click Now Microsoft Word won't allow me to open any word documents I have tried double clicking them Ctrl O and even selecting Open after pressing the Office button- but nothing will work Every time Can not open Microsoft Word documents I try to open a word document Microsoft Word freezes Strangely enough I just discovered that I can open documents that are in the recently open documents that pop up whenever you place the cursor over the Open selection in the Office button- but other than that nada I have run diagnostics no errors were found done a repair to no avail When I reinstalled Office it basically returned to the original problem of just not opening documents by double-clicking Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do Is this a problem with Office not being completely compatible with x Is there some upgrade to fix this

Everytime i try to open up a saved word document, Word fails telling me that "Microssoft word has stopped working". It's ine when opening up new files but it can be annoying trying to open up a piece of work in progress.
When i try to re-open after it crashes, word tells me that it would be safe to open up in safe mode. This way i can gain access to some of my saved work. But it's a very round-a-bout way of getting to it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have a serious problem. I have a whole bunch of word documents done up in office 2000. I had later installed Office 2007, and didnt like it, so I uninstalled it and went back to the 2000. Now, whenever I open all the existing word documents I only see code like the following... A HytA¨îºvEÙ²}•.F]I—Õĺ.

- I have downloaded the compatability pack and I try and save the file as a docx instead of a docm file and it says "the converter failed to save the file".
- I have also downloaded a word document viewer hoping that might allow me to at least view them, but that doesnt work either. same problem.

My wife needs all these documents for teaching, so they are very important and I am hoping someone here can help me restore all of these files. I would guess there are 20 - 30 files with this problem.

Thanks all.

I'm running Windows ME. Been fighting a virus on my computer and did a registry repair and now can't get either Word or Publisher documents to open. Both programs are still listed in the Start/Program menu, but I get the following message when I try to start either program:

"The application must be installed to run. Please run Setup from the location where you originally installed the application."

Well, tried to reinstall Word and got nothing. I thought I'd deleted the Rundll32.exe, and managed to reinstall it (I think). Can't find my ME disk to do anything from there.

When I click on the name of Word document in a folder to open it, it hangs and then says "Not responding". (This just started happening.) I have the same problem with files in Excel and html (where I use Firefox).

However, I can open files fine if I go to Word and use File, Open.

For some reason, I can still use a folder to open PowerPoint and Adobe files.

I followed a couple of expired threads on here regarding saved documents opening up blank as if you've lost everything almost like the font has been changed to white. I recently experienced this with both Word and Excel and discovered what the problem was.

It seems to be a corrupt font (verdana in my case) and selecting everything and then changing the font fixed the problem.

I have Word 2002 which is part of MS Works (came pre-installed), and I have MS office Pro 2000. They all work great except that it seems like Word is getting slower and slower to open and close documents. Most of theses documents are in the 20 to 60 KB in size and have one small graphic, the company logo.

A document takes about 6-7 seconds to open and about 6 seconds to close. It seems like they are getting slower.

My computer is clean, no viruses, no spyware or malware. I use disk cleanup and defrag regularly. I have 256 MB ram, P4 1.7 Gh, 40 Gb hard drive with 69 % unused. I wondered if more ram would help. OS is XP Home. I have AVG antivirus, Zone Alarm Pro, Spywareguard, Palm Hot Sync, CookieWall running all the time. Everything else is fast on my computer except Word.

Any ideas and advice welcome. Thank you.
 

A:Word documents open and close very slow

Try Office Experts Word troubleshooting, only do the steps until it works right, but you may need to do at least 3 and 5.

Also, if you have a recent Norton, there's a setting in there (under Misc?) that scans Office documents when you open them. Turn it off.

I can't open word documents by double clicking the document file. When i do this, i get an error message 'not enough memory or disk space to run outlook' (although i am not trying to open outlook!)

The only way i can open documents is to open word 2007 and then open documents through there.
the file associations are all set to word.

This problem started because i could not choose word as my default programme for docx files. i changed the programme file name from WINWORD.EXE. to WORD.EXE. and i managed to set the default programme as word, but now i have this problem.

A:can't double click to open word documents

Have you gone into the Control Panel's Default Programs menu and made sure that Word has all of the required defaults?

Control Panel (All Items) > Default Programs > Set your default programs

If that doesn't help, you can set the default for a particular program through the file associations menu.

Control Panel (All Items) > Default Programs > Set Associations

That should atleast allow you to cause .doc, .docx and all other Word related file types to open in Word 2007.

I am using office 2007. I had to get a new laptop and could only get Windows 8. Now when I click on a word document icon, the document will not open unless I open word and then open the document through word. The excel files open no problem, just the word docs.

Any idea how to fix this?

I have 5 computers on a network of 17 computers that when I try to open or save a document in either Word or Excel they open or save very slowly. I am using XP Professional and Office 2003 Business. Most of the computers work properly but the few I am speaking of if you open a document from the C drive it opens immediately. However if I open a networked fileit takes upward from 15 seconds depending on the size of the file.

If anyone else has found a solution to this problem please let me know. I have Googled this problem but have yet to find a solution.

Hi,
I can not open ms Word documents by double-clicking on them anymore, When ever I do so I get a mesage saying: "There was a problem sending the command to the program."
I do get the Word window open but there is nothing in it. I have tried this with .doc, .docx and .txt files and I get the same thing.
But I can open files if I first open word and then go to Open and select a document from there, but not by double clicking.
I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit and Microsoft Office Word 2007, can anyone help me?
 

A:Can not open documents in Microsoft Office Word 2007

Open Word, go to the Office Orb, then Resources, and then "Run Microsoft Office Diagnostics.

This will check out the install and do a repair if needed. You will need to the "Office cache" file on the hard drive or have the Office CD handy, if it is needed.

Often when I am opening documents in Word 2003, it takes ages for the system to respond 20-60 secs and when it does so it does it in a jerky fashion.
I have recently upped the RAM to 1 gig, so can't belive this is the problem.

Has anyone else had this problem? Can you suggest what to do to do to fix it. it can be very irritating to sit and wait for the system to respond.

Thanks,

Uninstall modem first.... then perform a system restore... when that’s done, reinstall modem with only the drivers... nothing more.

Let windows find them and when it does it will install only the drivers not the rest of the stuff on the cd... let me know if that works

Good afternoon,
     I use exchange online a lot (OWA) and a few days ago Internet Explorer started defaulting to OneDrive Documents Folder instead of my local Documents folder. It was running fine before that. Not sure what changed. I have since changed
settings in OneDrive to save locally instead of on OneDrive and even disabled OneDrive completely. However, every time I try to add an attachment from Internet Explorer, it defaults to my OneDrive folder and not my local folder. Anyone know of a fix? Yes,
I know I could just use a different folder and copy from my Documents folder to the new folder, but there's obviously an issue that I would like to fix. Thank you all for your help.

2) When I am in Gmail (email) and want to open a word or excel document in (Chrome) it opens a little window which ask if I want to open, save or open/save and where to save it. If I press open another window opens and ask if I want to open it now.
How can I just click on the word or excel document from gmail or anywhere and it just open up instead of opening up the program to open within?

Welcome to TSG....

You can try doing a system restore to a day or so before you made the change to view. It will not affect any data that you have but you might have to re-install any programs that you have had since that date.

Using Windows 7 64-bit.

When I click a Word document in Explorer or on the Start menu, I get the error "There was a problem sending the command to the program". I'm using Word 2003, but I don't get this problem with Excel 2003.

I know that when I try to open a document this way, the program uses the command switches "/n" -- which means "open a new instance of Word", -- and "/dde" -- which I don't know what it means. I do know that I don't want the /n switch.

1) How can I remove the /n switch? Remember, I'm not clicking on a shortcut, but on a document icon. I know how to assign the "Open With" command, but I don't see any options about changing command-line switches.

2) Is the /dde switch causing my problem? How do I remove it?

Don't know if I explained that very well. I pasted a picture (approx. the size of a VHS box) into a Word 97 doc. It caused the white area that you type your text into to SHRINK down to the size of an index card. I closed it down, didn't save anything. But now, every time I open Word, I am faced with a little index card sized field to type in. I can't see what I'm typing! The index card sized thing is surrounded by a sea of gray. I didn't check anything off to keep it that way...what have I done? How can I restore it to its normal view? I want to get it back to where the whole white page of paper appears there. I have rebooted to to avail.

Hi,

My windows explorer.exe has been crashing for the past few months when I open up a folder (e.g. My Documents, My computer). It doesn't happen everytime and I think I need to have all the folders closed and then open one up for explorer.exe to crash.

Here's what I found in event viewer:

Event ID: 1000
Description:
Faulting application explorer.exe, version 6.0.2900.3156, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x025d6810.

Let me know if you need any other information.

Many thanks to Stantly who solved my previous problem with windows explorer clicking folders opening in new windows despite the quot open in same window quot being set quot Explorer now opens folders if I click on them in the left hand quot Folders quot pane but if I click on any folders in the right hand files pane in opens a new window to quot my documents quot All the problems started when I added added a new function to the folder file folder file type properties to print out the contents of a folder by calling a batch file that piped the content to a file In the file association for file folders in the advanced section I now have three functions - the afore mentioned create file list - explore the default and - find For the folder file type I just have - explore and - open Any suggestions on how to make clicking folders in the right hand pane opwn them up propoerly in the same window as per clicking them on the left hand pane nbsp

I'm working on a friends PC and I can't find anything that will help me fix this.

The PC is running XP home. She can't get MS Word, Excel or IE to open but yet she can send and receive email via Outlook so we know there is a connection to the internet.

Any suggestions as to what I should be doing to fix this?

Thanks

Tried application manager which states MS Office programs & updates are downloading in the background - also says "done:". Nothing is done because it is not working. I did a restore because I downloaded some updates yesterday (these were KB... updates) and still not working. I have Office 2010. IE 11. Windows 7.

A:Cannot open MS Word or Excel

You could try running MS Office Repair. To do that open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2010, Right Click on it & select Change, this will open a couple of Repair options to try.

When you say you did a Restore, did you uninstall Office & then reinstall it.

Do you have any other versions of Office installed?.

A:Why User folder shows My Documents but folder location is Documents?

Hello pcwin,

The user folders that have "My" in the name are not actually named with the "My".

These are symbolic links, so when you name the folder "Documents", it will automatically rename and display as "My Documents", but in reality is still "Documents".

It can be a bit confusing.
