MS Word 2000: not able to view document

By kdv ·
My Laptop is not able to boot properly. Only way I can transfer my data is using "safe mode with network connection". I can copy my word files from my laptop to anther coputer, but I can't view it on the computer which has MS word 2000. word screen gives me funny characters. How do I view my word files. I copied zip file which has MS word documents in them that I was able to view just fine.

When you open the document, make sure you're not using "Recover Text from Any File(*.*)" as the Files of Type.
Go to Tools> Options. look at the View tab and make sure there are no check marks in the "Formatting marks" section.
I assume you expanded your zip files before trying to view them.

Very remote possibility but worth a try. If you are running 'TweakUI' get rid, it has issues with office 2000/xp and may be the cause here, goog luck.

Some machines are loaded with different fonts. The font used in the original documents may not be loaded on the second machine. 1. Try opening the document on the second machine. Select all the text and then change the font to Arial or Times Roman. 2. Or if you know the name of the unusual font that may have been used on your original machine, find a copy of the font and load it on the second machine. Then open the document again.
