Hello World:
   While attempting to save a MS Office 2016 document, a customer receives the error message in the title and attachment of error message,
Neither the relative path nor the UNC path make a difference and the same error message is repeated each time.
If the attempt to save locally to the desktop or anywhere locally, no problem.
The network is easily browseable and the local computer with the error was rebooted to refresh the system settings.
I've googled and nothing appears relatint to Windows,  Word, and Saving.
Any one experienced this or very similar and if so, how did you rectify?

what's the actual path and filename that caused the error? you may mask any alphabet for privacy concerns but better leave symbols as they are.

Bing CISM / CISSP, there aren't any wild chars or spaces in the path other than the "$" to hide the share from users browsing hence, wild chars can be ruled out.
Furthermore, the folders and files have existed on the network for years  hence, the cust was renaming a file from a saved word template for his new cust.  Hope this helps...

Save it locally, copy it to the network, reopen it and retry saving, for a test.
I know this funny problem since word 2010, happens very rarely for me.

Apologies for the delay but, hadn't received adequate responses.  It appeared to have been a corruption with the Windows Server default user folderredirect path/permissions.  I moved user data files from the default user folder redirect folders and reassigned all permissions accordingly.
