Hello,
I have a Mac with OS 10.5.8 with office 2011 and office 2008
when I try and open a file on my windows 2008 r2 server with word 2011 I get an error
saying Word cannot open this document.

if I open the same file with word 2008 I do not have this problem

I also have a new mac that was bought 1 week ago that has word 2011 and on that Mac  word 2011 works fine.

any suggestions on how to get office 2011 to work on the older Mac?
Thanks

Is this a particular file you can't open or any Office file?

Hello schaps,

I can not open any office file, from the server, if I copy the file to my desktop I can open it fine. any other program for example indesign has no problem opening files directly from the server.

Regards
