Iíve had a recurring problem at work for several years and canít find a solution. In another forum way back in July 2005, someone had offered a possible solution. It didnít work.
Windows XP, Word 2003
I maintain a few hundred Word documents for several departments at a university. These documents are all referenced to a global template (located on a network directory) that processes information from a database and inserts address (and such) information into the document. Sporadically a reference to the global template will be reset to a temp file e.g. ~wrc00003.tmp which is saved and stored on the local C: drive. Obviously the next person that tries to open that same file receives a ďCompile error in hidden moduleĒ warning.
So, wanting to correct the problem, I open the VBA editor and remove the missing reference and replace it with the correct one. I compile the project, save it, close the document and reopen it only to find that the reference has been reset to a .tmp file. Tried a gazillion times all day yesterday to try and rectify the problem, but no luck. I have tried just about everything I could: reboot the PC (2x); used a clean Normal.dot; searched the internet and Microsoft Support extensively. All to no avail.
Does anybody know what causes this and the solution to the problem? I really would appreciate any feedback.
