odd NT behavior

By playsafe ·
I frequently work on two different files simultaneously -- same content but one file is an .rtf and the other is a .doc. If I close my .doc first my NT system locks up the .rtf and I have to use ctrl-alt-del to close word, with my changes unsaved. If I close the .rtf first, all is well. This never happened on my Win98 system and it happens all the time with NT. Any suggestions

I would check three things:

1. Do you have the most recent Office service release?

2. Do you have permission to write to your Temp folder (may need an admin's help for this one).

3. It may be a bug related to temp files that are trying to write to the same file. Try renaming either the DOC or RTF file before opening it so the two files have slightly different names.

Hope that helps.
