How can I open Microsoft Word files on my iMac?

You can even use the Pages app that is installed on your computer. Finally you can buy a license of Office for Mac and have Word, Excel, PowerPoint and if you want Outlook too.

  • How can Tiger open Microsoft Word documents sent by e-mail?

    I recently upgraded to Tiger and use Appleworks 6, which is unable to read the Microsoft Word documents I frequently receive by e-mail. Is there any way I could read such documents, or should I get Microsoft Word? If so, which number/level would you advise? (I'm happy with Appleworks.)

    Do the problematic Word attachments end in ".doc" or in ".docx"?
    Neither AppleWorks 6 nor TextEdit will handle Microsoft's marketing-driven "improved" file format used in Mac Office 2008 / Windows Office 2007 (which is almost-but-not-really based on XML). There's a backwards-compatible option in those versions of Word to "Save As" Word 97 -2004 format (.doc). The practical solution where I work is to track down anyone sending .docx and threaten them with grievous bodily harm unless they resend as .doc and swear to never use .docx again.
    Microsoft has a converter that (allegedly) converts the new format to the vastly more common one, but that requires a previous copy of Office (Office 2004 or Office X).
    You can try the Mac OS X Dashboard widget DocX Converter instead.

    Try this Safari5.1 from the installer package

    The download worked better with Firefox not sure why. At the bottom of the page after the captcha>> slow down load is the Free link,  it took about 4 minutes to download on my test.

  • 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.
    Regards.

  • How can I open Microsoft doc attached to my iPad email

    How can I open Microsoft doc attached to my iPad email

    The document should open as an email attachment in the mail app. Did you tap on the icon in order to open the file?
    However, if you want to save or edit the document, then you will need a Word compatible app on the iPad. pages, Documents To Go, quick Office Pro ... And others are available in the app store.
    But you can open and read it right from the mail app as an attachment.

    Alas, you can't.
    You can open nearly all of them. Pages will open AppleWorks 6 Word Processing documents but not AppleWorks 5 ones.
    Word Processing documents can be opened directly only in Pages.
    Draw Documents can be opened directly only in EazyDraw (the more expensive version from their website, not the cheaper one from the Mac App Store, and you will need v4.0 'Retro' not the most recent version) or Intaglio (though this appears not to be able to handle very complex drawings). (It's possible to copy Draw documents into a Word Processing document in order to open them in Pages, but you need AppleWorks to do this in the first place.)
    Spreadsheets can be opened directly only in Numbers.
    Presentations can be opened directly only in Keynote.
    Nothing will open AppleWorks databases or Paint documents: the only way to access them is to open them in AppleWorks and export.
    This seven-page article examines migrating from AppleWorks in some detail:

  • Can't open Microsoft Word document through SharePoint

    Since upgrading to Firefox 35, I am no longer able to open Microsoft Word files through SharePoint. When I select "Edit in Microsoft Word," I get the error message "No connectivity with the server. [FILENAME] can't be opened because the server couldn't be contacted."
    Note that this is specific to my Mac. I can open Word files on SharePoint when I use my VMWare Windows simulator.
    Any suggestions for a fix?

    see if any of these can help.

  • 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?
    THANKS!

    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.

    If you absolutely must have the Microsoft applications, you can purchase and download them from http://microsoft.com/mac.
    Free software suites LibreOffice and OpenOffice offer similar functionality (word processing and spreadsheets).
    Or you could do worse than look at Apple's Pages, Numbers and Keynote, which should already be installed in your Mac and can export to Microsoft formats if need be.

  • I have converted a pdf to word. How can I access the Word file from my online account?

    I have converted a pdf to word. How can I access the Word file from my online account? When it says 'download the converted file' I choose a location on my PC and click, but nothing happens. It seems that it can only save the converted file to my online account. I went to my online account but I see no way to look for the file

    Hey Fabrizio,
    You might need to sign up at "https://cloud.acrobat.com/exportpdf" using your Adobe ID credentials to convert your PDF file to Word.
    Do you get the 'download' prompt?
    Also, you can find the converted files by clicking at the 'Files' tab. 
    Please try the same using a different browser and check.
    Hope to hear from you.

  • I have a new IMAC with a Maverick platform (I can update to Yosemite). I did all graphics on a G5 Power PC (very old), in Freehand (very old)... How can I open old Freehand files on this new Mac? Can I still open and work in Freehand on this new Mac?

    Can I still open and work in Freehand on this new Mac?

    Let me see if I've gotten this right! You want to remove an account from BOTH machines? Do this for your new machine first, then for the other.
    Click the Apple logo on the top left of the screen, System Preferences, Users and Groups (under Systems), unlock the lock in the window if its locked (you need to know the password), select the user that you wish to remove, and click the - sign next to the + sign for Login options. A window will pop up with some options. Select Delete this user and securely, and click 'Delete user'.
    After this, do an update from the App Store.
    Thats all there is to it.
    For the other machine repeat the process except for one thing. Before you delete the user in this case YOU, you will have to give Administrator priviledges to your son bu checking the box 'Allow user to administer this computer'.
    Do NOT do anything from Finder ... if you dont know how to fix the consequences of the problems caused.
    There is no need to unauthorize your iTunes account on your new machine. Do it on the old machine though.
