Default When I try to save an existing word doc, save as pops up and will not save...


Please help...
I open a document that I have created and after I add more to it, I push the save button so that I do not loose my work. At this point, the save as box pops up and when I push save from there, it goes away and immediately pops back up. When I hit save again or try to even rename the file and push save, then it says there has been a problem and asks if this has been helpful. I have had the word program for at least a year and this has never happened. Save as should not pop up at all when I have already saved and used the document countless times.

This sounds like a macro of some sort... If you press Alt+F11 to display the Visual Basic Editor and look inside a code module, do you see a macro called FileSave (and/or FileSaveAs)?

I did not see any macros but when I turned my computer off and on, it started working again?

I guess it must have been a temporary glitch, then. I'm glad the problem has been resolved. Feel free to post back if it returns.
