    Editing a word document is not possible in Windows 7 Professional

    I have the word document and want to edit it. I opened the document and I can only see it in the read only mode. It cannot be edited. I need to edit it and it should allow me to do. What might be the problem? Please, help me in giving the solution.

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    >>Open word document
    >>Go to File >Options >Trust Center and click Trust Center Settings, then select File Block Settings. This opens the dialog you describe.
    >>If you want to be able to open and save
    anything, you can clear all the check boxes. It then won't matter what radio button you have selected at the bottom because there won't be any file types selected.
    >>Click OK to save these settings and then try again to open the document.
    >>Restart Word.

    Thank you.

    • Open the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\W ord
    • Under the Word key, click the Data subkey.
    • On the Edit menu, click Delete. Click Yes if the following message appears: Are you sure you want to delete this key?

    hi,


    Friend i think u have simple but serious problem u can solve it by:

    1. Make sure ur word document is not secure by any password like open password and readonly password...

    2. if it is not like dat den u have to look for ur document was made by microsoft word 1998 99 base not in word 2010 docx formate otherwise it seems problem ..

    to overcome that do one thing first install MS office 2010 and change formate to docx and it will work smoothly...


    i hope that wll work for u
