Word doc with Excel table

Post by Rajah » Tue Jan 08, 2013 2:43 pm

Hi! I wish to edit table in Word document. I double click it and I see message (I translated it) - Programm, what needs to activate this Microsoft Excel 97-Tabelle is'n reachble. It is possible to convert or activate as other type of objects with Convert...
When I click button Convert, next window shows posibility to convert as Microsoft Excel 97-Tabelle only. After I press OK, nothing changes. It is not possible to activate.

Is there any solution to edit table without Excel?

Addition - I have no Excel in this computer.

So there is an Excel table embedded as OLE object inside the Word file? It should be possible to open it with PlanMaker (also part of FreeOffice). Have you associated all your Excel files types (.xls) with PlanMaker when you installed FreeOffice?

I hoped so, it should be.

Yes, of course. It is same on another computer with FreeOffice.

I can add this file, if You need.

And another one - my native language is Latvian, we have diacritic signs - like umlauts. Ā, Ē, Č, Ķ. I do not see theese signs,
must be "Atrašanās vieta", but I have "Atrasanas vieta"



Addition. In next versions, please add this - after document saving let save button be grey, after correction in document, let this button colored. I hope You understand me.

Please use another font that comes with the Latvian characters. Not every font contains these letters.

I'd love to, if You will tell me how to edit this table in document :lol:, by the way, this is default Windows Arial font, with all diacritic signs and normal Latvian letters and in other text documents it seems correct. [-X

Changing font: Select the text (CTRL+A or select with mouse) and select another from the font selection in the toolbar.

Could you please send us a sample file to forum(at)softmaker.de to see the problem here?

Thank you!

It works for me with the current version of SoftMaker Office. Please try again with the next update for FreeOffice as soon as it is available.

There is no new version of FreeOffice available yet. Rev. 668 is still the older version. Please try again from time to time to see if the new version has been released.
