I use Microsoft Office 2008. Since recently, Word opens on

Resolved Question:

I use Microsoft Office 2008. Since recently, Word opens on "Tableau" (graphs ?) and I cannot have access to Word Text (writing a letter for ex.)
I have downloaded again the Microsoft software. No result as far as Word Text is concerned. Your answer was :" your Word software is old." Date 2008. Is that too old ?
You answer " Normal.dot .... is corrupted" I don't know what Normal .dot is. Where I am to find it ? why is it corrupted ? by whom ? For the time being, I have no solution to my problem and I claim 41€ back if you don't provide with one. Sincerely. [email protected]

I can get to Library/Application support/Microsoft but I can't get to User Templates

After Application support : I get many Microsoft Office frameworks .. I have tried them all but could not get User Templates. Sorry

Do you see any other microsoft office folder anywhere? Can you search your computer for the normal file? thanks.

Office Converter support which opens to XXXXX framework - Microsoft Compound framework - Microsoft Ole framwk - Microsoft Olea automatic framwk Oleo - MSXML ; from each of them, you have to choose an application, each time, I choose+
Microsoft office 2008 but never get to User templates or Normal.
Where should I find Normal ?
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 5 years ago.
Try looking under Users>Library>Application Support>Microsoft>User Templates
Do you see normal.dotm there?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I finally got to Users Template but I am not allowed to open it.
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 5 years ago.
No problem you don't need to open it. Instead rename it to normal.old and then test word and see if the problem is still there.
