Microsoft Word 2003 Not Saving Doctument


P

pinkfairy1987

I have been running Microsoft Word 2003 on Vista with no problems for about 5
months. However I recently tried to save a Word document, using the save
icon, and the computer did not respond to the command. I then tried using
save as, and the same thing happened. I excited Word, and was asked if I
wanted to save. I clicked yes, but the command was not registered. I have
tried restarting my PC, but the problem still remains. However with Excel and
PowerPoint there does not seem to be any problems saving.

In Word 2003, in Help(across the top), click on "Detect and Repair"

Also, make sure you have SP3 installed for Office 2003

I am having the exact same problem as pinkfairy1987 and i also click on
"detect and repair" and have SP3 installed with no luck.

Any other ideas on how to fix this problem?

Unfortunately, the rest of us can't see pinkfairy1987's problem so we can't
help you. If the problem is constrained to Word, then you will want to post
in a Word newsgroup after reading the explanation below.

You are not posting on a real forum as you think you are and you didn't
quote any of the thread to which you are replying. You are using a web
interface that leeches Usenet posts and most of the rest of us are using
real newsreaders. We don't see what you do. If you want to participate in
Usenet, the better way is to set up a newsreader. This is very easy to do
and I'll give you information about that below. If you prefer to use a
forum, then here are two excellent ones:

Since you are using a web interface, you may not realize that this is really
a newsgroup. You will get far more out of this resource if you learn to use
a newsreader. There are many good newsreaders for Windows, but you can use
Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (Vista) since you already have it.
Here are some links to information about newsgroups:

Those pink fairies are very flighty creatures. Now you see 'em, now
you don't. Especially ones from the '80s.

Sorry Malke, just thought I'd inject a little humour. Those web
forums should be banned from interfacing with Usenet. It would
save a lot of frustration for genuine newsgroup users.
