Hey all,

So When opening any word document either from within word 2007, or from directly selecting the document, two documents open. The second document is the same as the first but there are definate issues when trying to edit the second one. The second document also does not have a title to be found. unable to close the second document until the first one is closed.

It sortive reminds me of an OLE issue but I have no idea on how to fix this. I tried a uninstall and reinstall of Office. Of course I tried looking through the menus and such but not sure where to navigate on this, I maybe over looking something.

Maybe I am not using the correct search termanology since I am not finding anything on it. Anyone out there have a clue or better yet an awnser on how to stop the second window from showing?

Thanks

This is a scientific wild guess. I know that when you open a word document, that Windows creates a temporary file at the same time. You can see it when you open the folder containing the file you opened. When you close the document, this temporary file goes away.

What MAY be happening is that this temporary file is also opening and showing a document when you open a document. That would explain why you can't edit in it, why it doesn't have the actual title, and why it can only be closed after you close the actual document. I don't know why this would happen nor how to keep if from happening if indeed this is what is happening.

You may want to try posting this problem on one of the MS Word forums.

I've learned blood is not thicker than money.
