Each time I want to save this specific file after a modification, I got an error message and MS Word shuts down. I tried to copy/paste the text in a new document but it doesn't help.
What happened is that I first wordprocessed a part of this document with Trados (translation managing software) and thought the problem was due to this but even when copying the "trados-free" part of the doc and pasting in a new one I still can't save it: Word closes without saving.

any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello, Many times when I open a document, for some reason the option comes up to save the document, yes or no. I have changed nothing on this document, just opened it. Anyone know why, and then should I select yes or no?

I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction with what appears to be a problem with Word.

I have a Lotus Notes application that stores a lot of information, and part of that is output to a word document for printing. A user opens a document in Lotus Notes, presses a button and a Word document is created with the relevant information in it. It does this by getting Notes to launch a Word template file with the layout how we want it, and passing an XML file with all the required values from Notes so that a VBA function in the Word template can read this information in. It's quite a convoluted way of doing things I'll agree, but I am just working with a a system that was developed a long time ago and in most cases it works well.

When the user is done making any changes to the Word document, there is a macro button in Word that they press to mark the document complete. This makes the document readonly, sets a few custom properties and then saves the document.

In most cases, if you were to run through the process, everything works fine. Sometimes however, a small number of users are finding that their work isn't saved. If for example they launch a new word document, make changes and then close word, then go back to that document and make more changes before pressing the Complete button in Word, they find that the next time they go to the document it's in the state before their most recent changes, which are lost.

When I save an MS word document from my Kingston stick to my Documents folder, it disappears from my documents folder. Why does this happen and how can I stop it from happening?

A:when I save an MS word document it disappears

I'd like to clarify a few things.

When you "save the document", are you transferring it from a flash drive to the My Documents folder on the main drive?

OR

Have you opened the document and then saving it to "My Documents" on the main drive?

OR

Is the "My Documents" folder one a folder on the "Kingston stick"?

Or are you doing something else?

A colleague of mine swear that she saved her Word document. At least half a dozen of time before closing it.

Is there a way to get Word 2000 to save the printer settings in with the saved document?

Example: My favorite word processor, Lotus Word Pro, will save such things as which pages were printed last, whether it was printed duplex or normal, and which printer it was printed to. So, if I open the document, print it to my HP5 in duplex mode and then save the document, the next time I open and print that document, it has those same settings already set.

Hi,

A friend of mine has MS Word 2003 and though it always used to work, a couple of days ago, it simply began to refuse to save anything. She is typing something for school, and when she tried to save the document, the "save" dialog box disappears for a second, then pops back up.......nothing else can work, of course, so long as that box is there........she tries repeatedly to save it, but it will disappear and reappear immediately each time. The only way she can do anything is to remove the name in the "name" area and then just click on the "x" at the top right of the dialog box. At that point, everything she's typed disappears and the MS Word page is blank again.

I've never heard of such a thing, but I'm not real familiar with the Office products. Does anyone have any idea what is going on and how to fix this?

Two people use my computer, Nathan and Michael.  Both are Administrators.  When Nathan is logged on his Word 2003 documents are saved in:
C:\...Nathan\Documents.  When Michael is logged on his Word 2003 documents are also saved in:  C:\Nathan\Documents.  Obviously, the way it should work is Nathan's Word documents should be saved under his log-in and Michael's documents should be saved under Michael's log-in.  I can't make that happen.  Here's what I've tried so far: 
 
I go to Control Panel, Tools, Options, File Locations.  When I click Modify I can indicate a different folder for saving Word documents, but I can't change the location "Nathan."  Also, any change I make just adds the new extension to the existing.  Example:
 
C..\Nathan\Documents    Modified to:  C..\Nathan\Documents\Documents, etc.  Whatever I choose is added onto the existing location
C..\Nathan\Documents. 
 
I hope I've explained this clearly.  Any Word 2003 experts out there who can help on this one?  It's really got me puzzled.  Thanks in advance.

Need help trying to save a word 2007 document. Am running Windows Vista. I have been working on this document for the past couple of days, a high school maths investigation with lots of equations and graphs copied over from 'Autograph' a 3d graphing software. I have been able to save it with ease with all this stuff on it until an hour ago. When I press CTRL+S it opens up the save as box (even though i've already saved it before). Then when i press save in this dialog box the box closes for a half a second before opening again without me pressing anything. I do it again and again and notice the little loading bar that tells you it's saving in the bottom right hand corner of the document gets stuck and then stops when the box opens up again. I've tried to rename it and this doesn't work. i copied it into an old word document and then saved that document and that document wouldn't save either. i got rid of it off that document and the old document saved perfectly. I closed it just to check it was actually not saving and it isn't. Is there something wrong with my document? or is it word? please help!

One of my user is having this problem on her Windows XP PC:

Dell GX260 with Windows XP Professional running 512MB RAM, Office XP, Acrobat 5.0

When opening a Word file & edited in Word XP, the user cannot SAVE or use SAVE AS the file, when try to exit out the file, get prompt to either SAVE, CLOSE, or CANCEL the file, at that point it will still not save the file, the only way to exit the file is to hit CLOSE to exit.

I initially thought this might be a Word Xp problem, so I ran the repair tool in Office XP, that did not fix it.

I then uninstalled Office XP, reinstalled Office XP, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then ran the Office update to download the latest patches from MicroSoft, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then UNINSTALLED Acrobat 5.0 from the PC, that FIXED the problem.

WITHOUT Acrobat 5.0 on her PC, the user was now able to open & edit a Word file, and able to SAVE the edited file, also able use SAVE AS to save the file as a new copy.

I then reinstalled Acrobat 5.0 thinking the previous copy of Acrobat 5.0 on the PC might be corrupted, as soon as Acrobat 5.0 was back on the PC, the same problem with the SAVE feature came back in Word XP.

I then installed the patch update for Acrobat 5.0, that did not fix the problem.

At this point, I am out of clues on how to fix it....The user tried Acrobat 6.0 before on the same PC, but decided to reverse back to Acrobat 5.0 because of format problem with 6.0.......so Acrobat 6.0 is no... Read more

I have a client with a problem creating new documents from the File > New > Word Document dropdown from Windows Explorer window. If I set her default font to Times New Roman it will stay for creating new documents from within Word. If she goes the other route mentioned above to create a new document it will always default to Courier. Also when she tries to save the document with the Save As item it defaults to txt instead of a .doc file.

A:converting PDF file to Word Document formant

If its been scanned in as a PDF, then its just a "photo" of the page.

You need to use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert a scanned image to a document. Such software (Textbridge, Iris etc) usually comes with the scanner, but do not expext miricles with it.

Having the PC decide exactly what part of the scanned image is text, what is an image and correctly decode it to the relevant parts is complex and "consumer variety" OCR is usually less than perfect.

If the PDF is in electronic format (prior to being printed and scanned) software exists that will convert it directly to text (I use Solid Converter PDF) but this approach only works where the person creating the PDF has allowed such activities.

It may be in the drafts folder. This will, by default vary according to which Word version.
But, across the versions, open the Options in Word and find the save option. In the window which opens, it will list your various save locations for the variety of Word you are using.
Alternatively, if you know the name of the file, how about a search?

Make sure to check "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected system files" in Folder Options.

Your Word document should be in a temporary folder in the following location:

C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

Substitute Owner for your username (computer).

Run a search on your computer and paste the above location into the Search path, or browse to it, along with the name of your Word document.

Hi!

I have a file in MS Word. Periodically I add to it. Lately, when I add to it and try to either save or close it, I get a message that says:
Cannot save. The disk is full or too many files are open.

My hard drive isn't anywhere near being full. And the only file open is Word.

Thanks.
 

A:Why can't I save this Word file?

Biz,

This Microsoft document covers the situation you describe: Q113908.
There are a number of things that can cause those errors.
For instance, Word may be exceeding the number of sub-files it can open.
To save your work you may be able to save it as in RTF format.

Regards,
Roger

Try refining this symptom description.  What exactly do you mean by "it won't open"?  Answering that might explain why you are posting this in an IE forum.  E.g. right-click, Copy Shortcut whatever it is that you are calling
a "broken link" and Paste it here.
Otherwise, try right-click, Save target as... to put the file into your Downloads (Ctrl-j) and then use right-click, Properties to find its
full path and name.  Note that that would be quite different from what the Copy Shortcut step would have shown.
Next I suspect that the Set Associations GUI tool may not be showing you the correct information.  FWIW it certainly doesn't show me the correct information in W8.1.  So, I would try checking if you have an explicit association and file type combination
by using the assoc and ftype commands in a cmd window.  In fact, instead of just showing the ftype for the current association I would use this:
    ftype  |  find  /i  "word"
Then you could take the most appropriate template (not necessarily the one pointed to by the assoc command) and fill it in on a Run... dialog (or a ... Read more

I just got a new lenovo with XP. I was using Word 2007 which is new to me. I was working on a document that I had e mailed to myself. I opened the document from e mail and worked on it. I hit the save icon periodically. I was looking for the 'Save as' option which I have since found, but at that time I couldn't find it so I couldn't rename the file and save it where I wanted it. I saved again via the icon and closed the file. It asked me if I wanted to save changes. I clicked yes. Now, I cannot find the file anywhere. Did it save changes or delete it?

I did a search for files by the name the computer gave it which had %20 between each word.

I searched for files modified in the last 24 hours.

I looked, unsucessfully, for TEMP internet files.

Does anyone have any suggestions or knowledge of what might have happened?

Thankfully, now I know where the Save as option is hidden for future files.
 

A:Word 2007 Where did it save file?

Hi, Welcome to TSG!

Did you look at the file in the e-mail to see if that is updated?
