Problem downloading a WORD 2003 and 2010 file.

I have been unable to upload a WORD 2003 file to Barnes & Noble. My son saved it as a WORD 2010, but that also failed. I have a very slow modem and that could be part of the problem. Nonetheless, I attempted the WORD 2003 from a high speed Wi-Fi at a coffee chop and that also failed.

 

I contacted Barnes & Noble and they suggested converting to *.RTF and then back to *.DOC. That also failed.

 

I will attempt to send the WORD 2010 file at a coffee shop.

 

The B&N site says "File conversion in progress'" but nothing happens. The 2010 WORD file is 732 KB.

 

Any suggestions,

Ed

Re: Problem downloading a WORD 2003 and 2010 file.

I used Word 2003 and had no problem. I saved as .doc. In Word 2007 and 2010, Save As Word 97-2003. It takes away coding that screws up the upload. It you get a message that says techical difficulties, ignore it. It was doing that and still might be.

Start all over again. Upload a new one and when it publishes, take the others off sale.

If you have anything odd in the document, that can cause problems.

I do hope I've helped a tad. Ask questions if you need ot and good luck.

I just tried uploading a revised cover and revised book document and neither will take. I have never had this problem before. How do you find out if PubIt! just isn't working right now?

LOL! A Golden Question if ever there was one!

Isn't that the truth?! Plenty of bugs in this system...and still unable to load. Maybe tomorrow, though not placing or taking any bets on it!

I would strongly suggest you DO NOT ever upload to your Pubit account using the "free" WiFi in a coffee shop.  Unless the coffee shop issued you a personal password that is unique to you and is not shared with others, you have entered your email and password in a manner that any trollers in the coffee shop can see.  This leaves your Pubit account with its links to your bank account at risk.

 

I have seven or eight friends whose email accounts were hacked using "free" WiFi.  I know it is tempting, but it is a very dangerous practice.  Your modem connection may be slow, but it is much safer than "free" WiFi.

 

Please read my books "Identity Theft in the Cyber Age" or "Twelve and a Half Steps to Avoid Identity Theft" for more information.

strange. I once met similar issue then I convert it and it works. Apart from uploading Word doc, have you ever uploaded the other document types, like Excel?

:smileyhappy: LOL, You do realize that this thread, along with the other one you commented on, are over a year old, right?

Just thought I'd let you know in case you missed the dates at the top of each post. Thanks for trying to help!
