I hate Microsoft Word 2002 for Windows 2005 Jul 27

It keeps telling me:

“There are too many edits in the document. This operation will be incomplete. Save your work.”

*I hate you*, Word.

The reason I hate Microsoft Word is that everytime they come out with a new version it takes the most commonly used functions and makes them more complicated while leaving functions that are rarely used where you can easily (if you ever wanted to) get to them. E.g. clipboard and Track Changes. I don’t think anyone who designs Word has ever used it.

I had this “There are too many edits in the document. This operation will be incomplete. Save your work.” problem, too. I found nothing on the internet or MS help pages to help solve it, until a co-worker suggested that I download Writer, open the document and save it as another document name. This suggestion proved successful in allowing me to again use MS Word to make further changes. I’m not sure what changed internally in the document or how long before I encounter this error again, but for now I’m back to work. Maybe this adds fuel to the OpenOffice vs MS Office debate 😉

Yes Davis – OpenOffice has helped me a lot lately too. I also have gotten great use from Google Docs — super useful.

I have NEVER seen that error message on MS Word, and I always use Microsoft Word to create, produce, and edit material.

Microsoft has, Mister “Learn MS Word” — see
