MS Office Word 2003 Can't Save Files

Tags: Software
MS Office Word 2003 won't save files. The File > Save As... option doesn't do anything, nor does File > Save or clicking on the Save Icon in the toolbar.

It's not a permissions issue, it happens locally and on network folders. For example, I can create a new Word Document on the Desktop (or any given folder) by right clicking and choosing New > Microsoft Word Document. I can then open /edit this file, but it won't save. I can also open / edit other files in these locations as well.

It doesn't affect other Office apps either. Excel works fine, for example.

Attempted the repair tool from the install CD. Attempted uninstall / reinstall as well.

Hi. Using Word 2003, tried the 'Detect and Repair' but it didn't work for me. The problem turned out to be that the path and file name exceeded the maximum path length (approx 250 chars). I moved the file to a directory higher up the path and then 'Save As' worked as normal. For more Word Repair Toolbox. In the Microsoft Word repair software, restored text can be exported to Microsoft Word or saved as a text file. If Microsoft Word cannot find a backup of files then our tool can recover text from corrupted file easy and fast. (copy in browser)
