    Corrupt Tables (WORD 2000)

    What could be the problem?? Over a period of two weeks, for several old and newly created tables in WORD 2000, either when I open them or when I save them, I get an error "a table in this document has become corrupted. To recover..." Hieroglyphics display and then parts of the table disappear. The Error Log includes "c0000005 <,nosymbols> I use the most current version of Norton Anti-Virus.

    Re: Corrupt Tables (WORD 2000)

    Microsoft's KnowledgeBase recommends saving screwy tables as RTF file format and then opening them again to a Word doc to clean out the lint. Obviously, this might leave something behind, but it might be worth a try. But why "newly-created" tables, too? Hmmmm....

    Re: Corrupt Tables (WORD 2000)

    In Word 2000, I'd suggest trying to save as HTML first- it is less likely to lose formatting than RTF- and it does save macros as well, which RTF does not.

    This does not work for Word 97 or previous.

    Re: Corrupt Tables (WORD 2000)

    The tradeoff with doing the save to HTML is a significantly larger file size - sometimes as much as double the original.

    With reference to the original post, we've had instances of this at our firm too, and have never gotten any satisfactory info back on this from MS. The internal workings of tables changed from Word 97 to Word 2000, and just from experience, Word 2000 tables seem to be more prone to corrupting.
