Hi Derk,

I cheerfully admit that this is purely anecdotal and not based on any

I have seen the problem at companies using Word 2000 or 2002 (XP), but I
have not yet seen it in Word 2003. At least some of the crashes might
have been caused by template styles or linked graphics that are

You report that Word doesn't corrupt more often than the other
applications that you run over the network. The question is, would Word
have corrupted *less* often if it had been run locally?

now, and I can't say I've run into these problems. We've had a corrupt
Word file now and then, but not more often than files of other
