    Can anyone from MS please weigh in on this issue? I get the same error,
    except that it occurs when I check out and edit a doc from Sharepoint.

    I've been posting this problem for well over a year with no response. We're
    considering moving to another document management solution because of
    problems like this one.

    Start Word in Safe Mode: from Start, Run type in

    winword /a

    and press enter. Are you now able to open, edit and save a new or existing
    file OK?

    Yes, from both my local drive and the Sharepoint document library site (Web
    folder).

    This would indicate that some third party add-in is causing the problem.
    Safe Mode is where Word opens in its default install condition bypassing
    normal template, any add-ins, customised macros, etc. Reinstalling or even
    uninstalling and reinstalling will not resolve the problem. You need to
    eliminate all the add-ins until you find the culprit. If you use the
    troubleshooting guide linked below (which includes closing problems despite
    its name!), it should help you find the cause.

    Well, we found the culprit. Goldmine has a template add-in for Word, called
    the Goldmine/Word link (GMLINK.DOT). Removing the template fixes the problem
    for us.

    Now I just have to get FrontRange to figure out how to fix this, since many
    of my users need both applications.

    Hi Phil

    Glad that at least you have found the culprit. I would be surprised if
    Goldmine didn't already have an updated .dot for this problem, though I
    wouldn't be surprised if they want you to purchase the latest version to get
    it!

    I am having the problem with a Goldmine DDE called Linkdot or in newer
    version Linkinstaller. If you remove the link or uninstall it you can use
    word again. If you reinstall the link all works well until you attempt to
    save a linked document just created. Very perplexing. If you aren't using
    Goldmine it may be some other add-in using DDE or Dynamic Data Exchange to
    link document files.
