I am running into a problem opening a Word attachment in Groupwise. When I attach the document and right-click on it to open it in Word, Word opens and I get the following error message: Winword caused an invalid page fault in module ole32.dll at 0137:19e01738.  I am running Windows 95a, Office 97, and Groupwise 5.5.2. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Groupwise and Word (but not the entire office suite). Any suggestions?

Hi Blue1,

The document is probably corrupt and this behaviour has nothing to do with GroupWise.

As a first attempt try to save the doc to your disk, then open Word, and try to open the file as 'Recover text from any file' (File/Open/File Type - Recover Text From Any File')

See this article for more explanation

Good Luck

If the document opens fine when you open it from Word directly (i.e., not through GroupWise), then I wouldn't even bother opening through GroupWise, if I'm sending out the attachment.

Now, does this same thing happen when you RECEIVE attachments? (Not clear from your post.)

It turns out that this document was corrupt and is fine with other documents. Thanks calacuccia for catching that!! I appreciate your help!
