I have a file 600MB that is a .doc file with charts embeded in it. I need to strip out the JPG charts (have not been able to do so) or know how to set my WORD 2007 to have a higher default than a document with 512 MB - which now is the case. This file and another which is larger (that I requested help on yesterday) are very IMPT for my work.

I think it comes down to maximum 32 Mb on text within the document. Graphics not included. You can put as many graphics in this documents as you like. The only limitation will be INternal Memory and eventually processor capacity. Maybe you already seen this link: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q211489 

Further more I found this document on how to optimize Word2007:

Hope this helps.


This does not help as I am unable to have it open a file more than 512 MB and it is in the 600 MB range. Is there anything else I can do?? Anyone else have some ideas?

>>This does not help as I am unable to have it open a file more than 512 MB
How much internal memory do you have? Can't you plug in more memory.

Just also curious who or what created this monster file if you can't open it in the first place?

If you get an error? Can you be specific on the error message and tell us?

It was created by an archeological research team using word processing programs of different sorts (from three international site groups)  and then converted to WORD 2003.  The charts (in JPG format) are related to individual site log entires. The error message says that the file is more than 512MB and WORD 2007 cannot open it.
