Is it just one document?

If so, save the document under another name and try doubling clicking that icon/filename. If it opens, delete the old one and rename the new one.

No, it occurs in every document.

Does it happen to new documents that you save now?

I just created and saved a file. Then I went back and tried opening but got the same error . Strangely, the error msg appeared 3 times in the new file but the old doc files only had it once.

Sorry, this one's beyond me.

I thought that maybe Word had lost the path to the docs, but if it's happening with new docs, I'm not sure what else to suggest.

Good luck!
