There are four possible causes to this problem:

The document is marked as final.
The document is protected.
You are using a trial of Office 2007.
Office 2007 has not yet been activated.

Whenever I open Word Document It tells me to put in my 25-character product key, which in on the bottom of my laptop, but then says that it is incorrect. I close the Product key notification and it goes to blank Word document not allowing me to do anything other than Clicking the office button, then either open, print, close or word options....

The product key on the bottom of the computer is for the Operating System Not Microsoft office. You have a trial version of MS Office and must purchase a product key if you do not have one. You can try the free version of Libre Office which is similar to MS Office if you need a licenced Word Processor.

Word will not work until you provide a legal acceptable key.
