WordBasic Err=7

A few weeks ago the WordBasic Err=7 "out of memeory" message came up when using Word6. It still does. It prevents me from opening files through the toolbar, it also prevents me from using 'save as' in the 'file' menu. I can however open files through 'explorer', and save, or save as by closing the file through the dropdown menu to the left of the file menu.

Excell and Access work ok. I have checked emory which is ok. I have re-loaded word6, and when that proved ineffective completely re-loaded ms office, also without success.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
