And I thought I was the only one with that problem. I updated my
resume on my b: drive by changing three words. The size changed from
17,nnn to 53, nnn when I saved it. I closed the file. Later I opened
it, made no changes and saved it to my c: drive using a different
name. It changed the file size back to 17,nnn on my c: drive. It
stayed 53,nnn on my b: drive. I now have the exact same printed
document on my b: and c: drives with different file sizes. Really
weird.

I thought someone here might know the answer to this. I am creating a
document in Word and happened to notice that the Word file gets grows
and shrinks in a manner unrelated to the contents of the file. Over
the past 10 edits, the newly edited file has been the following
sequence of approximate sizes 53,000; 110,000; 125,000; 91,000; 54,000;
58,000; 99,000; 162,000; 113,000; 123,000. Meanwhile, the actually
document has grown steadily from 12 pages to about 30 pages. The
document is quite simple--no mass of graphics. It has a TOC, a half a
dozen reference fields, and a few borders around paragraphs.

Does anyone know why the file gets larger and smaller this way? Does
Word do this all the time and I just never noticed before? I am
wondering if my machine is having some sort of problem. Or if the
software needs some adjustment of some sort.
