>>Here's the problem. I've been owrking on this doc, and at various points during my work, the file comes up corrupt and crashes everything. BIG surprise. I think I've pinned it down to a corporate logo in the header. Everything works fine until I delete the logo. Then Word suddenly doesn't like the file any more. Does anyone know if deleting a graphic can cause file corruption, and if so, does anyone have anidea on how to go about fixing it? I could spend days fussing with it, but I'd rather not. I suppose the ultimate answer may be to start a new file and do a massive copy/paste job.....
