Default Too Many Edits ...?

Word 2002 on XP SP3. I want to append a document at the end of another. I get the
message "There are too many edits in this document." How can I get around that? I've
tried cutting and pasting, inserting doc 1 at the top of doc 2, inserting doc 2 at the
bottom of doc 1, saving a copy of each doc and trying again -- I still get the same
message.

How can I insert document 2 into document 1?

Track changes is not active. I never use it. But there's a "show markups" icon in one of
my drop-down menus that is always turned on. I have no idea what it does. I turn it off,
but it turns itself back on.

Yes, I am using Insert File.
I have also tried copy/paste.

Is Track Changes active in either document?

When you say "inserting" are you actually using Insert File...?

If it isn't due to Track Changes I'm afraid I haven't a clue :-( That's the
only time I've ever seen that particular message. It might not be a bad idea
to ask again in microsoft.public.word.docmanagement - it gets a lot more
traffic than does this group.

Good Luck |:)

I was having this problem too and nothing would fix it, until I ran a program
called CCleaner

http://www.ccleaner.com/

It's a free download and an awesome tool, just open it and choose the
applications tab near the top and click all the boxes and it deletes a lot of
temporary stuff. Deleted 25 mb of stuff for me and tada, I can continue
editing this stupid template to my heart's delight. ^^

If you're still messing with this, try:

1. turn reviewing ON, accept all changes, turn it OFF.
2. Save AS new doc.
3. (should be 1?) do all the stability stufff like turn off background
save, etc.

if still not cooperating, try:

4. new doc, insert both docs into the new one.
5. open each doc with OpenOffice and concatenate them in OO. Then save
back to Word.

Let us know how it works out!
