    Can I get Word to open a document at the place I was last editing it?

    Shift+F5 should take you back to the last edit you made.

    But what I'd like is to get the file to open at the last edit, an ability that I had before.

    Did you switch from Word 2000-2003 to Word 2007-2010? Although this feature is supposed to still exist, it doesn't seem to work for me in Word 2007.

    Even in earlier versions of Word, there were some glitches. The following article describes how the feature works and has some code to work around the older glitches. GoBack (Shift+F5) doesn't work in some newly-opened documents.

    In the following thread, the user used a custom bookmark to mark his last position. Perhaps you will have to resort to something similar? [topic=774960]Open a word document automatically at particular[/topic].

    Are you saying that Shift+F5 won't work for you or that you want it to happen automatically? If you mean the latter, you will need an AutoOpen macros to execute the Go Back command on opening.
