    Compile Error Problem (WXP Office 2003)

    A friend installed Office 2003 and everything worked OK except that Word kept hanging up with a message something like "Compile Error in Hidden File." He finally went back to Office 2000 in disgust. Any ideas on what is the cause/cure for this kind of problem?

    Hi Phil,

    That article mainly addressed Access altho there was one mention that it might also apply to Word. It sounds to me like my friend may have a faulty macro or some VBA code buried in his Normal.dot or some other document that is getting loaded when he starts up Word. I'll have to probe him a bit more on the exact nature of the problem.

    Sorry to take so long to reply, but for the last couple of days I was unable to log onto the Lounge -- it kept posting a message advising me to change my DNS server. However, today it's all working again. Mysteries of mysteries.
