Word 2003 won't Save or Save As on my account. There are 3 other users on the computer (my family) and each one's Word 2003 does save and save as. I have tried to uninstall Word 2003 using control settings and then repairing it from original CD, and when that didn't work, reinstalling it from original CD, and that didn't work. Micrrosoft Excel is not affected.

    That suggests two possible causes and remedies:

    1. Corrupted Rename it or delete it, and see if the problem is
    fixed. Location can be found in Tools - Options - File Locations - User

    2. Corrupted registry entry, usually the Data key. If the preceding doesn't
    fix the problem, rename or delete the Data key, which can be found here:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\W ord

    Note: edit the registry with caution.

    If neither of those fix the problem, the usual 3rd source is a misfiring
    add-in. Remove add-ins one at a time to see if the problem magically goes
    away with one of them.
