ok so i got a huge written project due in like a week, and suddenly i open Word to put in the last bit of information and it ****s up on me. I can click on individual lines of text, but i cant write anywhere. If I have to write an entire report on Maya Angelou again i'm hurting someone, namely my sister.

If you can select it, you can copy/paste it.

That said, you can make a new, uncorrupted file and work from it.

Don't really know whaqt could have caused this but maybe you can just copy and paste the whole report into a new document. Failing that you may try to reinstall Word or try a repair of Word through add-remove programs. If that doesn't work you can try OpenOffice

Good Luck,

You can't copy-paste.

That's good. But you can view it right? If worse comes to worse, you can just re-type it. It's not like your file vanished into the Techno-Abyss.

You think 3 pages is huge lol.

Wait until you get to uni and start 10,000+ word dissertations.

Check it isn't set as read-only.

I had this happen when my free trial of Office ran out. That could be the problem.

(Or maybe it wanted me to register or something, I don't remember.)

Try opening the file in someone else's copy of Word, I guess?

(I think that's what I did.)

Definitely. Either e-mail the file to somebody who has Word or save it on a thumb/flash/jump drive.
