    Periodic Crash (2003 SP1)

    Periodically, Word crashes and autorecovers a document - five times over a 12-hr period. When I display the errors, they are strange things not related to text revisions, which is what I've been doing. Possibly the crashes happen when I try to do something "too fast," such as copy some text in Normal view, switch to Page Layout view, scroll, and paste. Could these symptoms be related to the lack of the latest Service Pack(s)? If I go to my IT guy, what is the latest "safe" Word Service Pack that I should ask him to install?

    I don't think a service pack would help with problems like that, but just in case: SP3 is the latest service pack for Word (Office) 2003, and it is safe.

    I'd check out <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000) ,197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000) <!/post>.

    Thanks, Hans. I will give those steps a try. If the problem continues, I'll note some of the "weird" errors for my next post.
