Cannot open Word documents through My Network Places
Posted on 2006-11-01
I have 2 computers networked together through a hub using Netbeui. The first one is Win98 with Office 97, the 2nd is a computer with XP Home and has Office 2003. Bothe computers can open their own files in Office. The Win98 computer can open the Office files that are located on Win XP through My Network Neighborhood. But when you go through Win XP's My Network Places you can see the Office files on the Win 98 computer but when you double click on one of them you get the following error message:
"The document name or path is not valid
Try one or more of the following:
*Check the path to make sure it was typed correctly.
*On the file name click Open, Search for the file using the dialog box.
(\\computer name\x\....\Blank Quote.doc)
If you try to go into Word, File, Open, My Network Places, C on computer name you get the following message
"Word has insufficient memory. Do you want to save Document X as Rescued Document X"
"Any idea why this happens? As for RAM on the new computer it has 512 mb (But 128 is taken by videio) so it ends up being 394.
