    Unecessary Prompt to Save with Equation in Word (Word 97 SR-2 / Word 2002 SP-1)

    I have a user that is inserting equations into a Word 97 document using the Insert > Object > Microsoft Equation 3.0 function. He creates the equation and saves the document. He edits the equation and saves the document again. Then he closes the document by clicking on the X in the upper right and gets a prompt for whether he wants to save changes to the document even though there haven't been any changes since the last save. I've been able to recreate this error with Word 2002 with the same results. Allow Fast Saves is turned off. TechNet does not seem to have a good article on this anomaly. We tried the workaround in Q133860 with no success.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Link tags added by Mod.

    Hi rhitzeroth:
    Never noticed this before because I modified my close button to do a save/close, but I just checked & got the same thing.

    I noticed that you get this prompt even without changes. If you double click the equation & then click outside again, Word goes into an endless save mode. You can see this by pressing Ctrl+S over & over & watching the little safe on the status bar.

    I could find no mention of this on TechNet or KB. Not the answer that you were looking for, I know. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
