  • Cannot open Numbers document

    All of a sudden I keep getting the message "dcument could not be opened".  Does anyone has any idea how to recover this file?

    My language setting is german; therefore the error message is german, too:
    Die Datei „BLE Firmware Slotplan.numbers“ konnte nicht geöffnet werden.
    My best translation is: "The file „BLE Firmware Slotplan.numbers“ could not be opened.

  • I cannot open iCloud documents on my MAC I went to preferences etc and it did not give me access. My error says I need an updated version of numbers but I have the latest version

    Mac OSX 10.4
    Processor 3.06
    Numbers 2.3 (554)
    I cannot open iCloud documents on my MAC I went to preferences etc and it did not give me access. My error says I need an updated version of numbers but I have the latest version

    You cannot access iCloud on a Mac running Mac OSX 10.4.  Are you sure, the system version is correct?
    If you are running iWork '09 (iWork 09 9.0.1) on your Mac with Numbers 2.3, you must at least have MacOS X 10.5.6 installed.
    if you want iCloud support for iOS apps, you need the iWork 9.3 update,see:  About the iWork 9.3 Update
    And this update requires OS X Lion v10.7.4
    Is your iMac compatible with Lion or later?

  • Why can't I open a Numbers document saved to my MacBook Pro desktop?

    I was trying to open an existing Numbers document saved to my desktop. It took me to the App Store, but I didn't have access to a Wireless network. If it needed an update, why does it require the update to open an existing/previously saved document?  Very frustrating and completely embarrassed in front of my audience!!!

  • Cannot open Pages documents that I've worked on.  I open a new document, work on it, then save and close it.  When I try to open the document again, I get the following message: The document "[name]" could not be opened. The file isn't in the correct form

    I cannot open Pages documents that I have worked on and saved.  When I try to reopen Pages documents that I've saved, I get the following
    "The document “[name of document]” could not be opened. The file isn’t in the correct format.
    The file might be corrupted, truncated, or in an unexpected format."
    I have downloaded the latest update to iWork, but that doesn't help.
    I use Mac OSX 10.6.7
    I am using Pages '09 version 4.0.5 (852)
    If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Best regards,
    New York Mac User

    A few general trouble shooting tips that may apply here:
    1. If you used Software Update to do the OS update(s) to reach 10.6.7, go to and download and apply the Mac OS v10.6.7 Combo Updater. The Combo Updater contains some fixes that were not included in the incremental updaters used by Software Update.
    1a. Check that you have the current version of Pages (and of the other iWork applications) installed. All three applications' current version numbers end in .0.5
    2. A common cause of malfunctioning applications is a corrupted preferences file (.plist file). Your Pages '09's plist is at yourname > Library > Preferences >
    Quit Pages, locate the file and Drag it to the Desktop (or to the Trash).
    Restart Pages and attempt to open one of the files.
    If all is well, Trash the plist file and empty the Trash.
    If there's no change, AND you've made changes to the Preferences that you wish to keep, drag the file back to its previous location, replacing any new one that has been created.

  • I had Microsoft Office installed in my Macbook Air by one of the technicians in the store, it was working fine the first week but after that it started popping a notice saying it cannot verify my suscription online and now I cannot open any documents?

    I just bought a Macbook Air almost a month now. When I bought it, the technician installed Microsoft Office 365 as they were having a promotion at the time. However after a week of using it, it started popping up a notice saying that it cannot verify Microsoft Office. I still managed to open the word document but as of today, it will not open. I took it to the Mac store last week, and they said that there was nothing wrong with it and they could not figure out any problem.
    I don't know what to do and I am in desperate need of help. I cannot open my documents at all and I have my research paper that I need to finish writing. This is very disappointing and extremely stressful for me. If anyone has any suggestions of how this can be fixed, please let me know. I do not want to lose my hard work =(

    Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription - based service. You have to pay for it... and keep paying for it... and paying for it... as in 365 days a year... or lose your hard work.
    Office Home Premium is a mere $10 a month, but a convenient annual subscription is only $100 a year. This is a substantial discount to Microsoft's Office 365 business products ($150 / employee / year).
    Such a deal! Are you not absolutely thrilled?
    Here are some slightly more reasonable alternatives, all of which are compatible with their Office equivalents:
    LibreOffice (donation-supported)
    NeoOffice ($10 but older version is free if you can find it)
    OpenOffice (completely free)
    Numbers ($19.99)
    Pages ($19.99)

  • An update for numbers was shown for my macbook pro, however even though this has been done I cannot open numbers without updating and when you try to update again it advises you that this is already done so we go round in circles getting nowhere, any idea

    `   I cannot open numbers as it requires and update, and the update has taken place yet it still maintains that an update is required and when you look to iupdate it advises you that you have already updated so we go around the circle and get nowhere.  Help please.

    Hi renrut,
    Do not delete the old version of Numbers (Numbers 2.3, Numbers'09). It has features that the new Numbers has lost (in particular, Print View).
    Numbers '09 has been moved to a folder called iWork '09 inside your Applications folder. The icon on your Dock continues to point to Numbers '09. Launching Numbers from that icon is why you get the "Update" message. Numbers 2.3 is trying to open a Numbers 3 document.
    The new version of Numbers (Numbers 3.2 is the latest version) lives in your Applications folder (not a sub folder). Drag that icon to your Dock. It will become an Alias. Right click (or control click) on it and Options > Keep In Dock. Now you can chose which version to run.
    Numbers 2 on the left (three columns)
    Numbers 3 on the right (four columns).
    Both versions will run happily side by side. Just be sure which version you use to open a Numbers document. If Numbers 3 tries to "steal" a Numbers 2 document, you will get a warning when you start to edit:
    Edit a Copy will preserve your Numbers 2 document and create a Numbers 3 copy. Cancel will get you out. Upgrade will convert your Numbers 2 document to a Numbers 3 document.
    If all else fails, you can do Menu > File > Export To > Numbers '09 to revert.
    Do not delete Numbers '09 (or Numbers '08) from your machine! You will need them.

  • Can't open numbers documents, says index.xml file is missing?

    can't open numbers documents, says index.xml file is missing

    I came across this problem after upgrading to Mavericks.  Here's what I did to solve the problem:
    Issue:  I began working on an existing spreadsheet.  After I saved it and tried to pull it up again later, I got the message "index.xml file is missing...".
    Go to your dock and delete the icon for Numbers (mine still referred to the previous version of Numbers). 
    Go to Applications and drag the Numbers icon to the dock.  This icon now links to the new version of Numbers and  (hopefully)  your spreadsheet should work.

  • Word cannot open this document.  The document might be in use, the document might not be a valid Word document,  or the file name might contain invalid characters (for example,\ /).

    I recently upgraded to a new Macbook Air running Lion, from my 2007 white Macbook running Snow Leopard.  I had Office for Mac 2004 on the 2007, but had to upgrade to Office for Mac 2011 to be compatible with Lion on the Air.  Now when I try to open my documents on the Air that were saved under Office 2004 on the old computer, I get the following message: Word cannot open this document.  The document might be in use, the document might not be a valid Word document,  or the file name might contain invalid characters (for example,\ /).
    Any suggestions?  Thank you.

    Ha,ha,ha.....I figured it out.  But for anyone else who's having this problem, it seems that while Office 2004 allowed dates in this format: 00/00/00, Office 2011 doesn't like it at all.  I just changed the format in the document names to 00-00-00 and all is well.  Documents are opening beautifully! 

  • Word 2008 "Word Cannot Open this Document"

    I couldn't find a better forum so I'll put this here.
    I have Microsoft Word Version 12.0, and have had it installed for a few months. I set the saving format to compatable by default (so it makes .doc and not .docx). Yesterday I was working on a word file I had saved on my thumb drive and it worked fine. Today I try to open it (both on my Macbook, my iMac and on a PC I had access to) and it gives me the following error: "Word cannot open this document. The document might be in use or might not be a valid Word document". I have noticed that this has happened to half a dozen of my other word files also. I notice that on my Macbook all of the word files have the new plain black and white icons that show the text in tiny writing, while the ones I can't open have the old blue file icons (on other, older computers they seem the same).
    So I have three questions:
    Is this a problem others have faced? If so, how can I get around it?
    Are those particular files just corrupted? If so, is this a problem I ought to be wary of with Word 12?
    If they are corrupted, is there any way I can rescue these texts? It's a very important document.
    I eagerly await your responses.

    Have you tried the Microsoft Word for macs forums?

    i cannot open my document in pages 5.0.1 that I created in same. Computer tells me that I need to have a later version of pages. What do I do?

    You're running an older version of Pages, perhaps in a folder called "iWork '09" in the Applications folder, or else on your Desktop. Quit it and launch the one at the top level of Applications.

  • Cannot open PDF document in IE8

    On a computer with Windows XP, IE8 and Reader XI     (11.0.3) we cannot open a document within Internet Explorer.  The "add-on" exists in the "run without confirmation" however it will not open the document.  I did note that in trying to open the "PDF of Reader XI Help" it did download the document, and listed the size of the document but it would not open it.
    Thank You Pat G

    Hi, T.
    When you import a PDF into Photoshop to get some images placed inside the PDF, there's no need to rasterize the file. This is because the feature is a bit hidden in the dialogue screen of "import PDF". Look in the upper part of the dialogue and you'll see "Select: page". Go into that drop down and select instead "image" (the exact wording may vary as my PS is a Spanish one).
    Then, you'll be offered all the image boxes inside the PDF. They'll be imported "as is", no resampling or rasterizing needed.
    Hope it helps

  • After updating photoshop CS5 to 12.0.4 x32 (windows) I cannot open my documents/files or create new

    I had the problem before. Reinstalled Photoshop CS5 and updated again.
    Clicking a file starts Photoshop but does not open the file.
    If I click "new" to make a new file, nothing happens.

    Hi PE
    Yes, but nothing happened.
    I was instructed to press some key during startup of Photoshop, and it should reset the program.
    However, it did not work.
