Hi Everyone,

I did a quick search of the forums and didn't come up with anything similar to the problem I've just started having with MS Word.

I'll be working on a document and saving my work every so often. Then all of a sudden Windows starts telling me that it can't save the file.

I goofed and didn't think quick enough to get a screen shot of that message.

However, I was able to copy past everything, from the document I was trying to save, to a new document, which is what I did as I had already had the same thing happen to me a couple of times before. Then when I clicked 'Yes' I get "This" message.

OK, so then I click 'No on exit to close the document and got "This" asking if I wanted to save the changes to the document.

Then I Just click No because that's the only option that will let me close that application. Then when I try to open it again I get "This" dreaded message.

Have any of you guys ever run into anything like this before?

It doesn't seem to matter if the document only has ten pages or if it has one hundred ten pages. Nor does it seem to matter if I have a lot of images in it or none at all

I am at a loss as to what to do to prevent this form happening in the future. At least I have a work around that I can use so as not to lose my entire document..., but this is still just a bit nerve wercking.

Thanks for any help or advice guys.

Wendy
