Recently, I moved several MS Word 2007 documents from my new Vista laptop to my desktop Vista PC, which also has Office 2007, so the Office software is compatible.
I don't know whether this transfer triggered the glitch but now, whenever I open a docx document, I get a prompt saying:
"Windows cannot find 'C:\Users\Stephen C. Galleher\Documents\Stephen's Documents\Quotations, etc\Gratitude.docx'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."
Odd...but then the document does, in fact, open.
But the document that opens is in compatibility mode [Read only] mode. This is odd!!
Then, when I go to save as as Word 2007 document, I get this prompt:
The file ... already exists: Do you want to o Replace the existing file. o Save changes with a different name; o Merge changes into existing file."
This glitch or series of glitches does not occur when I open a Word document in an older version, only when I open a docx document.
What the devil is going on? And how can I correct it?
Any help would be so, so appreciated!
