What Word document?

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to office 2007-word troubles ...

Are you creating a new document, or are you trying to edit one that already exists? If the latter, did you copy it from CD/DVD backup so that it probably has it's read-only attribute turned on?

Also, in order to provide the best help that we can, we ALWAYS need to know what operating system you're using.

little more info please

by setantapc In reply to What Word document?

Can we get a tad more info please ?

Document type ?
Are you opening a Word 2003 doc in Word 2007 ?
Are you using a full registered version of Office 2007 ?

Why I ask is, I've seen folks install the time bombed demo which locks certain "functionality" after a certain date.
