    Unable to save documents (Word 2003)

    I am working on a series of documents created with Word 2003. I'm using a machine which also has Word 2003 and have copied the document templates into my templates folder.

    However, when I change a document and click the SAVE button, it is not saved. If I try to access either SAVE or SAVE as from the File menu, I can't. As a test I have created a new document and it is fine so I'm guessing this is a template compatibility issue but other than that I'm a bit lost.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Many thanks

    Claire

    Are File | Save and File | Save As greyed out, or do you get an error message if you select one of these options?

    Hi Hans

    Neither - if I select either option from the menu it does absolutely nothing - as if I'd never selected it - very strange!

    With one of these documents open, activate the Visual Basic Editor (Alt+F11)
    Locate the document template in the Project Explorer.
    Do you see Modules under the template?
    If so, double click one of the modules, then search the entire project for a macro named FileSave or FileSaveAs.
    Can you find such a macro? If so, what is the code?
    If not, do you see Class Modules under the template?
