    TOC Update Error (Word 2003 (11.6359.6360) SP1)

    I need some help with a TOC update error. This is a multi-file document and the following error comes up when trying to regenerate the TOC:

    The enclosed image shows the error window, but the full text is quoted below:

    The file you tried to open was not found. It may be missing, in a different location, locked by another application, or unavailable due to file permissions. If you are sure the file exists but you cannot locate it using the Word File Open dialog, start Microsoft Windows Explorer and perform a search. If the search dialog returns a listing of your file, double-click on it to open it. If the file does not open, it is either corrupt, locked by another application, or is protected by file permissions.

    "There is also the slight possibility that the file extension for the file is no longer recognized by the Open with feature of the operating system. You may need to reset the file name extension to the application it should be opened by. To reset the extension, find the file using Windows Explorer, right click on the file, and then select the application that should be used to open the file by clicking Open with."

    Any ideas on what might be causing this error.

    The most obvious source would seem to be that one of the files in your multi-document file has either been moved, deleted or is already opened by some other user. You need to check the references to external documents and ensure that they all refer to documents that actually exist and that the locations are correct (and that you have the necessary authorisation to get at them.
