I have one particular document that I can not open. The file was created by me using Win7 & MS Office 2003. When I try to open the file I get the message "There is not enough memory or disk space to complete the operation". I have 6GB Ram & 865 MB hard disk space so I know this message can't be right. Has anybody else experienced this problem? If so what is the work around? Thank you in advance.

What is the size of the file you are trying to open in MS office? Are you trying to open it in microsoft word? if not which program of office are you trying to open the file in?

I realize you have 6 Gb of memory but unless you are using 64 Bit version of Win 7 your only using 4 Gb of that 6 Gb.

860 Mb is not a lot of space left if you really think about it. IMO

The file I am trying to open is a rather large file 1.96Mb. I seem to have "mis-spoken" the size of the hard drive as it is 865 GB remaining on a 1 TB drive. I am trying to open it with MS Word 2003. I am running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit operating system. I hope this helps.

the file is on the same machine you are trying to open it on ? sometimes you see this error if trying to open from a network drive.

I do not have office 2003, but did you see if it will work just the same?

I've opened some pretty big files using the newly released MS Office 2010 version of Word, I know there was a Beta version of it available, but sense its been a release candidate I am not sure it is still available anymore.

Does this document contain any special formatting that maybe Office 2007 or Office 2010 cannot handle?
