I can open the document, but i can't type anything. I can't do anything with

"selection" is locked."

It suggests that you either haven't activated your version of Office or you
have a trial version that has expired.

Alternatively, it might simply mean that the selection includes a content

(Of course, if it happens with *all* documents, this explanation is less
likely.)
