Word 2007 "File error has occurred" - cannot save docx


O

Oriana

Hello!

I am working on Word 2007 on Windows Vista and I have all of the latest
updates.

I have a 37-page document that has text and images. I have already
formatted the entire document and I am running through my final edit on it.
I got to page 17, tried to save, and it tells me, "A file error has occured."
No matter what I do (rename it, save it in another location, etc.), the file
will not save as a docx file. I am able to save it as a 2003 document;
however, I cannot keep the file this way as it messes up my formatting and it
needs to be a docx file for my client. Once I save it as a 2003 file, I am
not able to save it back as a docx file, either.

I have looked online for help and found that it either has to do with
equations (of which there are none in my document), or track changes. The
entire document is full of track changes because the client needs to see my
format/edit changes. If I accept all of the changes in the document, then I
can save it as a docx file. Obviously, though, this is not helpful.

I see that people are continually having this problem (along with the one
with equations). This is unacceptable. Has Microsoft done anything to solve
this yet?

Thank you.

Yes. It is called Word 2010.

Thank you for that -very- helpful reply.

I am not in charge of purchasing software for my company. We work with
2007, not 2010.
