Can't make changes to my word document

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I've formatted a new calendar on to a word document using text boxes and text and now when I go back into the document, and will not allow me to make any changes -I can't add or cut or copy any text.  It was fine while I was creating it, then after saving it as a doc.x it won't let me alter it.

Sorry, not enough information to answer.  It sounds as though you may have
placed some invisible object in front of those text boxes, preventing you
clicking in them.

why does my Outlook 2007 download pdf attachments in Word?
when PDF document attachments come into my email inbox, they are opened in Word, and consequently cannot be read unless saved to desktop and then opened with adobe - a convoluted process. It hasn't always been this way. What have i changed? You have changed the file association of pdf-files to open with Word instead of Adobe. There is no option to change this in Outlook as Outlook follows the settings you made in Windows. Which version of Windows are you using? One way to re-associate it with Adobe again is to right click on a saved pdf-file-> Open With...-> Choose ...

Excel cut/paste prob: Adds one day and changes year to 2009

It is compromising my reports and giving false information. The workbook you're copying from uses the WinXL default 1900 date system while your destination workbook is using the MacXL default 1904 date system. You can change the destination workbook system (Preferences/Calculation, uncheck the 1904 date system checkbox). Alternatively, you can enter 1462 in an empty cell. Copy the cell...
