Can't open MS Word documents under OOo

Postby cdplayer ยป Fri Jun 03, 2011 11:05 am
I've installed version 3.3 of OpenOffice under a Windows XP SP3 operating system where it works perfectly. I am able to effortlessly open Microsoft Word (MS) and OpenOffice (OO) documents.

I've installed OpenOffice (OO) version 3.3 under a Windows 7 operating system. The software overall works great with the exception that I am unable to effortlessly open MS documents via OO. OO appears not recognize MS Word documents. :(

I vaguely remember when installing the software on the XP box there was an option I was able to select so that OO would recognize and open Word documents under OO.

Now that I've installed the software can I turn on an option within OO to enable OO to recognize and open Word documents on the Windows 7 computer?

Thank you!

Anybody could give me step-by-step guide on how to create linked index in the OpenOffice word processor. I tried some link in the internet but could not do myself.
I have some contents placed in the OpenOffice word and I should create an Index on the first page and clicking on which should take to the relevant topic at the down. If anybody could give me one example with some index name and clicking on which takes to the contents down what I want, remain I could do myself. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Just seeing if anyone has any experience of running Libreoffice on a Windows 2008 R2 RDS install?  I've seen mention of older versions of OpenOffice having problems running in a terminal services environment but can find little on LibreOffice and 2008 R2.

It's basically because Microsoft Office open licensing is incredibly expensive and this may be a way round it, but it needs to be robust and reliable.

Many thanks,

Phil

I want to generate a PDF from an Openoffice/LibreOffice Writer document. The document has three levels of paragraphs, and then mostly lists. For the table of contents I use those three levels, and I want the same for the PDF index.

When I open the PDF, the index has the paragraph titles plus the complete lists. This is useless, as it's just a replication of the content.

Is there a way to set OO to use only the paragraphs for the index of the PDF?

Hello,

I am trying to compare two sheets and output the results.

I am not sure how to do it and would love any pointers.

2 sheets 'sheet1' and 'sheet2'
compare 'sheet1' 'column b' to 'sheet2' 'column b'
if the values match compare 'column a' to 'column a'
if 'sheet1' 'column a' is greater than 'sheet2' 'column a'
than replace 'sheet2' 'column a' with the greater number

I don't know much of MS-Excel. I have an .xls file of 3000 rows/columns. I have to assign serial numbers starting from 0 based on the cells which has same contents. I can do entering 0 in one cell and use drag and drop but doing this for huge file takes much time. The file contents are as below:

A1                B2

Dentist           0
Dentist           1
Dentist           2
Dentist           4
Tax Return        0
Tax Return        1
Tax Return        2
Tax Return        3
Tax Return        4
Tax Return        5
Finance           0
Insurance         0
Insurance         1
something         0
--------          1
--------

Open in new window


In the column B2 I manually did drag and drop. Anybody has any trick so that I can do it for the entire file with a single shot or with less steps?

I have been using Microsoft Word 2007 for over a year without a problem. Then during the last month I have noticed that on an increasing frequency, new documents created in Microsoft Word become saved as an Open Office format. This is in spite of even choosing to do a "save as" and picking Word 2007 or 2003.

After searching online for different solutions, I tried them, but was unsuccessful. During my exercise in futility, I wound up installing the upgraded Java jre-6u24-windows-i586-iftw.exe. One of the suggested solutions I found online suggested creating a new document within OpenOffice and saving it as a Microsoft word document.

I tried that and received the attached screenshot error message which prevented me from accomplishing the goal. The version of OpenOffice.org that I have is 3.2.1.

How do I prevent this from happening in the future and how do I convert OpenOffice documents into Word, and have it "stick?" Thank you very much

Hi All,

I print report to OOCalc.

I change its file name using :

 oCalcDoc.getCurrentController().getFrame().Title = "TRIAL BALANCE " 

But when I click file, save as from menu OOCalc, its filename still "Untitled 1"

I want the file name kept "TRIAL BALANCE " when we save it.

How could I do it ?

Thank you.

Hello,

I'm trying to watermark a SINGLE cell in Openoffice Calc or Excel (I'd prefer to be using Openoffice because of the specific computers I'll be using this spreadsheet on).  I have found the feature to watermark the entire page, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Basically, I want a grayed out value to remain in a cell until someone puts a value in that cell, at which point the grayed out portion goes away.  The grayed out value would come back if data is removed from that cell.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hello,

I need someone to point me into an easiest (Don't need the best or cleanest) solution to generate PDF invoices from command line (bash) script on my Centos server.

What I would appreciate is a blank invoice or invoice template.
I was thinking to use Latex to generate the invoice but unfortunately I haven't found any nicer template and making it by myself is such time consuming especially when I have very poor knowledge of latex.

What my invoice should have:
Seller and buyer info; Seller logo, vector lines to divide items etc.; thumbnail in each line of items.

I'm open to any other simple solution like:
Making the template in Openoffice or MS office....and then somehow just insert the required data by script and generate pdf.
Or maybe the best solution is to generate a web page and then generate pdf from the content of that page (I don't know what tools to use for the html2pdf conversion).

Thank you,

Petr

I am writing a thesis and that has strict page formatting deadlines.  I have plans for a three level chapter organizational scheme and I have scores of image files that I am trying to get auto-numbered captions for.  I am unclear how to use the Navigator functionality to mold the table of context as well as get the ToC to be numbered in lower case roman numerals (i,ii,iii,...) while the main body is regular arabic numbers.  

How do I accomplish creating such an infrastructure so I don't have to worry about all these numberings?

I have some Excel users who are using the shared workbook feature so that all can write to the same Excel file at the same time.  I am trying to introduce LibreOffice and ran into this feature which I was unaware of.  Is there a way to make LibreOffice share this file as well, i.e. can Excel and LibreOffice users both share this spreadsheet?

I remember a few months ago I installed Open Office (OO) on a 64-bit computer and it is running perfectly!

The problem is I can't find the location of the suite any more. Maybe I installed the 32-bit version.

I don't know much about OpenOffice, but now I need to know a lot!

I need to use an output form one program (text file) as a database for adresses in a standard letter merge in Writer.

The output is a standard text-file containing a lot of addresses. Each address is 6 lines.

I hve to transform this six line address into something like a CSV file: 6 fields per address, semicolon as delimiter, preferrably contained in quotes - all neatly presented in one line per address.

And the solution has to be fool proof. The user, that will be using this on a monthly basis, knows just enough to folow a guide on how to do the merging from a template. So this has to be done almost automatic.

How do I solve this??

This question is for open office calc, but i think excel users would probably  be able to help

I wish to merge A1 - C1. I want to do this to all rows ( i have 2000 ). I believe this has to be done with a formula. I found the below. The only thing is i don't know how to implement this. ie where do i put the formula. And what cells do i select.


=CONCATENATE( A1; ":"; B1; ":"; C1 )

I have three columns of data. The first column are dates, the second has data that varies from 0.001 to 100, and the third column has data that varies from 6,000 to 14,000.

My question is how do I plot the third column in the same graph? I need to see how the data varies for the third column in relation to the 2nd column.

 I would like to see the dates as the x-axis - along the bottom of the graph, the second column along  the left side of the graph, and the third column alongside the right side of the graph. If this is not possible then all I need to see the dates (x-axis), and the 2nd column along the right side of the chart.

Here is what I am getting now, the 3rd column is the blue line sloping up from the bottom left.


Thanks. image of what I am getting
