I REALLY need access to a lot of these files
While you wait for someone to help you with Pages, try using the Open menu of TextEdit, or try using the free OpenOffice.iMac Intel/2C2D, eMac G4/700, Mac OS X (10.6), 10.5, 10.4, 10.3, 9.2
Currently Being ModeratedDec 11, 2010 8:02 AM (in response to Tom Gewecke)Yes, i can actually upload to my Google Docs and do what i need, but i just think iWork should work as i was told. Am I correct that it "should" be able to open these files?MacBook Pro 15, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 11, 2010 8:23 AM (in response to Steven Wilson)Having the exact same issue on a new MBP. I've DLed both .doc and .docx files via Chrome and Firefox and none of them open in Pages 09. I keep getting the same "The document "[filename]" could not be opened."
Very eager to find a fix.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

Make sure your iWork applications are updated. For iWork '08 that is Pages 3.0.3 & Numbers 1.0.3. For iWork '09 it's Pages 4.0.3 & Numbers 2.0.3. If you're not running the latest versions & Software Update says your software is up to date, make sure the applications are where the installer initially put them. The updaters are very picky. If the location is not where the updater is programmed to look or if the folder doesn't have the name the updater looks for, it will not work. The applications cannot be renamed or moved.
VERY IMPORTANT>>>> They must be in the iWork '08 or iWork '09 folder in Applications. That iWork folder must be named iWork '08 or iWork '09. If it doesn't have the '08 or '09 Software Update won't find them & the updaters won't work

Currently Being ModeratedJan 4, 2011 10:08 PM (in response to Peggy)aargh. OS is updated, Pages is updated (4.0.4). Doc won't open on daughter's new macbook, but will open on my imac or older macbookpro with same updates. Something funky with the new macbook install.
Anyone have any ideas on where to look to fix this problem?
I've trashed prefs, I've repaired permissions.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 19, 2011 12:26 PM (in response to Steven Wilson)Im having the same problem w/ BOTH Doc and DocX formats. (Also Xls and XlsX)
I have DOCX and XLS files sent to me by a client for project purposes.
I can open them in Word 2004 (w/ XML update) w/o any problems.
I am also running iWork 2009 w/ current updates. Also running Mac OSX SL 10.6.5.
I can open the DocX files in TextEdit - again w/o no problems (save for formating - but I dont need it).
To test this - I created a new file in Pages. Also a new file in Numbers. Saved copies of BOTH as Doc and Xls.
Opened both in Word and Excel w/o any problems.
Made changes in the respective Applciations - resaved the files.
Wnet back to Pages (and Numbers) and attemtped to reopen the files that were previously made in Pages and Numbers and received the following Error:
"The document 'Untitled.doc' could not be opened."
In Numbers it is a slightly different story. I try to open an Excel file (either format) and I get a Progress bar that says "Opening..."
Then it crashes after about 30 seconds.
Additionally - From Pages and Numbers - if I save out work in Doc and Xls formats - then immediately re-open them in Pages and Numbers w/o going to Word and Excel first - it produces the same results.
Currently Being ModeratedJan 20, 2011 2:21 AM (in response to Jp Cooper)Which scheme where you using to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.5 ?
If you used the infamous "Software Update", hurry up,
download and apply the 10.6.5 combo updater.
or download and apply the 10.6.6 combo updater
