Help! Can't open or rename doc with long file name
Have you tried renaming in Windows Explorer rather than Word? Other than
that, I don't have any ideas, sorry.
Thanks for the idea but no joy. F2 was unresponsive on this file. When I
try the Insert file method, I get a message that the full path of the file is
too long and that I need to use the Map Network Drive command to connect to
the server to shorten the path (I'm not on a network). Any other ideas?
You could try one of two things:
Click on file name and press F2 to see if it will allow name change or, if
this doesn't work, bring up blank page, insert the file, and rename with
I apparently renamed a Word 2003 document with a file name that is too long.
Now I cannot open or rename this document. When I right click on the
document, I get an abbreviated menu that does not include rename. When try
to open the document, nothing happens. Any way to correct this and get my
document back? Thanks.
