the word version

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
Hi Niklas, I downloaded it and can edit the document without any problem. I noticed that the document is created on a very older version of Word, possibly 2003 or 04

Open the document on your Word, click on File menu and select Save As. Then in the Format pop-up menu, click Word Document (.docx).

Save it. This will produce a docx document. Now, you can open it and edit it.

I also converted the document to latest version, here get it from here : http://wikisend.com/download/889132/Case_information_010309V1.docx

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

Best Regards,
Ashik

Good but i still can not for example delete part B regarding witnesses.. and on part A I will have to write a lot and make different numeration but it still does not seem to work :(

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
The document is restriced, that is why you are not able to delete the contents. It is like a form, where you can only fill the required parts and ignore the unwanted parts.

However, you can remove the protection or restriction put on the document.
  1. On the Review tab, under Protection, click Permissions, and then click No Restrictions.

Word Review tab, Protection group

  1. In the dialog box, click Remove Restrictions.

 

 

Here is the unrestricted version : http://wikisend.com/download/576780/Case_information_010309V1.docx

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

mine comes up with manage credentials and then some password XXXXX

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
Does that happen when you try to unrestrict it ?

Did you tried the document I sent you ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

jepp i tried the one u send me,

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
Can you edit the one I sent you ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

nope...


it does not allow me to un-restrict... just manage credentials and then a user


XXX@XXXXXX.XXX

and asks for pw

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
The document I sent you is already unrestricted one. So you don't have to unrestrict again to edit it.

Here, download this document. I saved it as latest version and removed the compatability feature : http://wikisend.com/download/347482/Case_information_010309V1%20-%20Converted.docx

I just noticed that when the protection/restriction is removed, I can longer check the checkboxes or edit the document with the correct formatting. So I didn't remove the restriction on this one, but you should be able to add the contents to the required fields.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
