Subject:Word 6.0 Save As Problem From:Marlena Hanson <MOHANSON -at- UALR -dot- EDU> Date:Thu, 21 Aug 1997 07:42:13 -0500
Has anyone had this problem:
In Word 6.0, when a file on a user's hard drive is opened, it comes
up as a Word document, but when user attempts to save it, it will only
give the option of saving it as a template in Word and instead of saving
it to the hard drive, the only option it allows the user to do is save
the file to a network drive. I have tried to reinstall Word, have run virus
software, and have also tried to install Word into a different directory.
The same problem still occurs. Please offer suggestions about how this
can be corrected!
