That's still very odd though. I can use all 3 versions of save and the work opens just fine for me running XP Pro SP2. It's like KD said above, computers are as individual as thier users. So many configurations, coupled with different types of various software running...some in the background, etc. It's bound to be a prgrammer's nightmare. All they can really do is try to program for the largest common denomintor. Glad your issue is resolved. .
