Word 2007 crashes when a template is opened that has a combo box in a table
Posted on 2010-11-24
I have just come across a major issue, I have created multiple documents that have a
combo box set in a table, which is used to code the borders of the table. All combo boxes
and code work perfectly when the document is saved as a .docm. As soon as I save this
as a .dotm and then try to open it from the templae Word crashes.
I have tested this just using a complete blank document and adding a table and combo box
with no code what so ever and this crashes also. I then tested it using Word 2010 and it seems
to have been fixed in that version. (I just wish everyone in my office had 2010 then this would
not be and issue).
Is anyone aware of anyway I can fix this problem? I do have documents that I can attached if
anyone would like them.
I have just found that the issue is not putting a combo box into a table, I have just done some more testing and found that putting a combo box on a blank page and making this a template also crashes Word.
Thank you for your assistance.
