Can't open/edit Office files

We can't edit Office (2007) files when we open them over Teaming.
E.g.: We have under Teaming a file directory with an Excel file. When we click on
'edit' the Excel application starts and a login dialog pops up. After the values are entered
the file are opened in office. But the file is write protected.
If we make the same procedure over https the file wouldn't be opened.
Two questions:
1. Why would the Office file over http opened write protected?
2. Why is it not possible to open the file over https?
Here our environment:
SLES 11 64 bit
Teaming 2.1
LDAP Sync to eDIR
Office 2007
Windows 7
IE 8
Firefox 3.6.3
Yes, the time is in the whole network equal.
Yes, the ssl certificate is valid.
Teaming was installed how it is in the installing manual described (Firewall forwarding).

My reading on this problem suggests it is because MS decided Win 7 wont do
WebDAV folders properly, one assumes it is to try to lock you into
Sharepoint or BPOS........ nice!
Google WebDAV and Windows 7 and you get a bunch of grumbling users......
As a work around I have been using BitKinex to sync Teaming doc folders to
local drives with some success, and then edit the docs off the local drive
granted it wont work in a large system, but is good for a travelling user
like me :-)
best of luck

  • I have InDesign on PC. If I get a file originated on a mac can I open/edit this file?

    I am thinking of installing InDesign on a PC instead of a Mac.
    If I get a file that has been originated on a mac will I still be
    able to open and edit the file

    be aware of mac "forked files" these are resource files native to mac and cannot be read/opened with a PC.
    You'll usually see two of the same file:
    ".__yourfilename.indd" and "yourfilename.indd"
    the files beginning with ".__" are useless to you on a pc and can safely be deleted. The one without ".__" is the one you will want to keep and use.
    Also if you have been saving to a mac formatted hard drive (HFS+ journaled) you may have some difficulty seeing/reading this drive on your PC. You'll need to save these to a drive formatted to be read by a PC. If you cannot transition the data off an HFS+ journaled drive you can read mac drives with a program such as "macdrive"

  • Can you open/edit indesign files on CS3 that were created using CS5?

    I recently bought indesign CS5 and am using this for my internship; however, my boss is still using CS3 and said she could not open or edit the indesign file i sent her.  I looked under "export" to see if there was an option and did not find anything.  I am using a mac and I believe she is using a P.C., also, when I last sent her the file, I was still using my free trial - does any of this make a difference?  Please help! 

    This has been covered endless times but anyway, I'll do it again!
    You have to export an idml file from CS5, then open that idml in CS4, export an inx file from there then open that in CS3 and save as an indd.  Sorry but there is no way round it, fullstop, end of story etc etc.  So if she is using CS3 and you're using CS5 there is no route between them unless you have CS4, and even then the route is littered with pitfalls!  Look here for a rather long discussion / sometimes rant on the subject.
    Ultimately she'd have to upgrade, or you could see if you could buy a CS3 or 4 version but it is very hard to get a legitimate copy, the only way is buy it off someone you know and most people aren't selling because they're upgrading.
    Best news last, there is a short term fix, go to this guys blog and you can download a trial version of CS4 which will last for a month.

    Hi There,
    After looking around for this error, it seems to be related to OS, we would recommend you to contact Apple support for this.

  • How can i open microsoft office word documents on my ipad 4 and edit it.

    How can i open microsoft office word documents on my ipad 4 and edit it. How to transfer my scaned documents on it

    There are a number of apps that are compatible with Office documents. Apple makes iOS versions of their own iWork apps (Pages, Keynote, Numbers) that are available free if you purchase a new iOS device and that can be purchased separately for older devices. There are also 3rd party combined suites that cost less than the separate Apple apps. Ones often recommended include Documents 2 Go,  Quickoffice and Office2 HD.
    If you can accept needing a network connection whenever you want to use the apps and have an Office 365 subscription, Microsoft has just released their Office Mobile app, though it has significant limitations. Or a server-based solution such as CloudOn might be an option for you.

    Use a product such as OpenOffice, LibreOffice, Google Docs, iWork, or Microsoft Office 2008 or newer. In the case of Word documents, you can also use TextEdit.

  • Authentication prompt issue when opening an office file in a document library with read permission for domain users

    An user as part of the domain users tries to open an office file from a document library but he got an authentication prompt asking him to authenticate. Domain users has only access to this library and not to the whole site. This uses to work in SharePoint
    2007 without any problem but not in SharePoint 2013, we didn't have a workflow on SP2007.
    Domain users has read access to only this document library in the site, but he shouldn't get an authentication prompt since he is part of the domain users and he is not trying to modify the document, he can open the document but gets two prompts, he can't
    also see the list using explorer view since nothings appears using the explorer view.
    Now, when opening the file, we can see..Updating Workflow Status, but we don't have any workflow working on this site or library, event any feature related to workflow.
    If we go to the event viewer in the server, we find this information,
    I also checked this thread but I couldn't find this scenario.
    I also created another list with the same permissions and using other office files but got the same behavior.
    Now, we have migrated this site from SP2007 to SP2013.
    Any ideas?

    OK, I am going to throw out a lot of ideas here so hopefully they get you closer to a diagnosis. Hang on :)
    Does it happen to work for some users but not others? If so, try logging in on the "good" computer with the "bad" username. This will tell you if the problem is related to the end-user's system. Also, once the user downloads a document
    successfully can they open and work on it in Word? Also, does the document library have any custom content types associated with it or does it just use 'Document'?
    I notice that there are other folks on the web that have run into this same problem and the similarity seems to be that they are either on SharePoint 2007 or have upgraded from 2007. Did this doc library start out as a 2007 library?
    What you might want to do is this: Make a site collection from scratch in 2013 (or find one that you know was created in 2013). Choose team site (or whatever you want) for the root web and set up the security the same way you have it on the malfunctioning
    library. Now, use windows explorer to copy and paste some of the documents to the new location. Be sure you recreate any needed content types. Now test it from the troubled user's computer.
    I'm thinking there may be something that is different about the library since it was migrated through various versions and updates since 2007. I've sometimes found that there can be problems (especially with user profiles but that's a different story) with
    things that go through this evolution.

  • Opening MS-Office files

    I installed MS Office 2004 on my iMac (intel). But now, when I open any Office file (.doc, .xls, ...) by double-clickin on an icon, they are associated with a "trial" version of MS Office. How can I change it, so that files are opened with the "right" Office version (not the trial one) ?

    Hi Pepol,
    Well you can right-click (or control-click) on the file in question. From there select Get Info. Once that window opens look for the combo box below Opens With. Then select the installed version of Office as the default application. Repeat the process for all the Office fomatted file types.

  • Can't open any excel files after installing Snow Leopard

    I can't open any excel files after installing Snow Leopard. Is anyone else having this problem?
    I have a standard iWork '08 install. Has anyone experienced? And better yet, know of a fix?

    Welcome to Apple Discussions
    Most users who have had a problem opening Office files with the iWork apps after upgrading to Snow Leopard have the problem fixed by updating to the latest versions. For iWork '08 that is Pages 3.0.3 & Numbers 1.0.3. For iWork '09 it's Pages 4.0.2 & Numbers 2.0.2. I don't use Keynote, but it should also be updated. If you're not running the latest versions & Software Update says your software is up to date, make sure the applications are where the installer initially put them. The updaters are very picky. If the location is not where the updater is programmed to look or if the folder doesn't have the name the updater looks for, it will not work. The applications cannot be renamed or moved. They must be in the iWork '08 or iWork '09 folder in Applications. That iWork folder must be named iWork '08 or iWork '09. If it doesn't have the '08 or '09 Software Update won't find them & the updaters won't work.

  • HT4847 how can i store ms office files in iCloud?

    how can i store ms office files in iCloud?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    To store Office files on iCloud, you need Numbers, Keynote or Pages, depending of the files you want to upload (Word, PowerPoint or Excel).
    First, if you haven't done it, open App Store and purchase Keynote, Numbers and/or Pages. Then, if you have OS X Mountain Lion, when you open the app, you will see an iCloud window where you can drag your Office documents to be uploaded to iCloud.
    If you don't have OS X Mountain Lion, open, login with your Apple ID, select iWork and drag your Office documents

  • I've upgraded to OS X10.8.2 but I can't open power pc files and applications

    I've upgraded to OS X10.8.2 but I can't open power pc files and applications

    Note that there's no such thing as "PowerPC files." PowerPC applications won't work on OS X 10.7 or higher, but the files created by those apps can still be opened if there is an updated version of that app. For example, if you have MS Office 2004, you cannot open any of those Office apps, and thus cannot open any of your Office documents. However, if you upgrade to Office 2011, or some other substitute (such as Apple's iWork suite or the free OpenOffice or LibreOffice), you will be able to open those documents again just fine.

  • Cannot open MS Office files directly from network

    Hi all,
    I'm having trouble opening Microsoft Office files off of a network drive. 
    When opened, the application jumps straight into the template page (attached screenshot).
    I can copy files onto my local machine and open them no problem, however if I have an existing file open (from the local machine) and subsequently try to open a network file, the local file is closed and the template page replaces it. 
    The same symptoms occur when attempting a "Save As" to the network.
    This topic first appeared in the Spiceworks Community

    I've tried replacing the office plugin file NPOFF12.DLL from a working system to the bad system, and it didnt help. I got that by doing typing about:plugins in the address bar. This person can open PDF documents, it's just Office files that dont open. I get no prompt to do anything. I have seen threads about headers on the webpages, but I'm not sure if its applicable. I tried from OWA and it does the same thing; nothing.

  • How can I open a cc2014 file in my cs6 version of Indesign ?

    How can I open a cc2014 file in my cs6 version of Indesign ?
    I have several files that has been saved in a cc2014 version and I can't open them in my CS6 version of Indesign.
    I don t have access to anyone who have the cc 2014 version to convert the file.
    How can I do it from my cs6 version?

    You can't do it from CS6.
    You have to export to IDML from InDesign CC2014 (or whatever the version it was created in) and then open the IDML in the earlier versoin of InDesign.
    All explained in the FAQ on the main forum page.
