Re: Stupid Word question
I should know this, but I don't:
Why is it that for some Word docs, I'll make some changes, save the doc,
and close it, and even though I just saved it, I'll get a popup asking me
"Do you want to save the changes you made to
Yet for other docs, I'll go through the same steps, save the doc, and when
I close it, it just closes, with no last popup prompt?
Know? Know!!?? That's a tough standard where Word is concerned. But I'll hazard a guess.
If you make a change to the document properties, this change is not saved when you save the document. So when you close, you get challenged to save the properties changes--except the popup is the same, so you can't really tell that there are two entirely different objects involved.
