Unable to Save As in MS Word

By okippiko ·
While working in MS Word I am unable to use the Save As command. The computer assigns a file name when selecting Save As. Can you help me with this problem? I'd appreciate it. My system is a Pentium III 550 MHz, Win 98, 128 MB Ram. Thanks, Len Piko - piko0@home.com

Word always suggests a file name the first time you do a Save document, and every time you do a Save As. Simply change it to what you want.

Or am I not understanding the question?

If you start with a new file it will prompt you with "save as".

If you open a file and want to "save as", you should modify a thing in that file than you can "save as".

And your file must not "read only" or protected. Select the file and rightclick to check on the properties of that file.

If none of the other gentlemens replies seem to work, consider you may have a "virus".As a Technician for the I.S. deptartment in a large organization, we have been getting sacked with the "wm97" worm virus that specifically does not allow users to "save as" or "save" Word documents, causing a constant "looping" and other strange problems.The latest virus definitions from McAfee (4082) which you can get from the McAfee website will eliminate this nasty virus.Hope this helped.
