Word error: The document name or path is not valid - cannot fix
Posted on 2007-10-16
I'm trying to open a Word doc and I'm receiving the following error message, which you've all no doubt seen before:
The document name or path is not valid. Try these suggestions.
" Check the file permissions for the document or drive.
" Use the File Open dialog box to locate the document.
I've tried the reg fix from the Microsoft support page, tried disabling smart tags and opening the document, and tried starting Word in Safe Mode - all with no luck.
I've restored the file from backup from 3 weeks ago, same problem, and the problem is across multiple PCs.
Does anyone have any ideas?
