    'Cannot execcute command' dialog box (Word 2003 / XP SP2)

    When attempting to launch a .doc from within Windows Explorer when Word is not running, Word starts then presents a dialog box (see attachment) saying "the command can't be executed because a dialog box is open. Click OK, then close the dialog box to continue". I click OK and the document opens. WHen Word is already running, there's no problem.

    Any idea how to fix this annoying glitch?

    This error is almost certainly caused by an add-in that is starting when word starts. Try looking at <!profile=Phil Rabichow>Phil Rabichow<!/profile>'s <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word, 197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word<!/post> for advice on how to identify which add-in is causing the problem
