Hi folks,

Has the genius of the groop been silenced?

No solutions, no comments!

Subject: [BCAB] Problems opening and saving docx files

I'm getting errors opening and saving these files.
I can apparently save a docx attachment in, say, my docs. When I click on
that attachment to open it, I get an error sound and the message that the
file can't be found. This is despite the fact that I am in my documents and
clicking the file I have just saved. Eventually, a file opens and can be
read. However, this file is treated as a wd000... file and placed in temp. 
I can resave this file and put it where I want and things are fine. How do
you clear the error and having to do this fancy save routine?
