DH reckons the problem is because dd's file is a .docx file.
MS xp Pro can't read them so my computer has opened up the free trial version of 2007 it came with.
I don't really want or need this myself and if I have to pay £85 just so dd can do her homework I'm a bit hacked off.
I've tried converting the docx file to doc but as the file is on the internet rather than saved in my documents I can't browse and find it to convert it. And of course I can't save it in my documents without buying the product key.
I have a really old copy of MS Office. When I click on properties on the Word icon is says MS XP Professional so I'm guessing that's the version????
DD has started secondary school and she can log into her school account at home. So she wants to finish off her homework and at home has accessed the documents that she started this morning in the school library. Its MS Ofiice 2007 and is asking for a product key which I don't have.
So the document will open but text is greyed out and I can't do anything with it. I can't save it elsewhere, I can't copy and paste the text.
Am I going to have to bite the bullet and buy MS Office 2007 (or 2010)?
