 Winword has caused an error in Winword.exe Post a Reply

Please Help!!
Whenever I work on a large file in Microsoft word, I get the error message "winword ahs caused an error in windword.exe." When I start Word again and try to access the file it tells me that the file is locked and I can only open it as read only. I usually give it another name and try to continue, but I keep getting the same message. Does Word has a limit on file size or something? If so, how can I increase it so that my large documents do not give me so many errors?

Are you on a network? Is it possible that someone else is using your file? It sounds like you are using Office 2000 with Windows 2000 Professional.

I would make sure no one else is using the file. Word will give a similar error when someone else is using the file. Usually, it will offer to notify you when the file is available for editing or open read only.

Also, try a right-click on the icon in Windows and choose 'properties'. Make sure that the file is not 'read-only'. If it is, then uncheck the box.

There are so many possiblities with this type of error but I would start with this. If it does not help, then let me know and I can offer another solution. I am not aware of any file size restriction. Just to humour me, let me know what size the file is.
