It sounds as if the option 'Confirm File conversion at open' is set. In Word 2007 it is under 'Advanced'.

Sorry, I thought it was Word X (an early Mac version).

Look in Tools/Options. Without actually running up my system with a pre-2007 version, I can't say for certain which tab of the Options dialogue it is on. However, the checkbox wording is the same or very similar.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I found it..in Word...tools/options/general(tab)...it was unchecked. I checked it, closed and reopened Word. no change. Went back in and unchecked it, closed and reopened Word. No change.

I was tediously going through the steps, and when I got to Word add ins, I let "Fix-It" take over. It disabled all add ins, and that fixed the problem. Thanks.
