View Full Version : Help with an Office XP Pro Error Message

10-28-2008, 06:16
In a Word document that I have developed for a project, there are three tables.

When I load the doc, this error message pops up:
A table in this document has become corrupted. To recover the contents of the table: select the table and choose Convert Table to Text from the Table menu.
When I click the OK button that accompanies the message and go into the doc, neither of the tables appears to be corrupted and the message does not tell which table is corrupted and Office "Help" doesn't.

I've converted and reconverted the tables, I have completely redone one of the tables, but the message still pops up when I load the document.

There is also a "Section Break (Continuous)" that will not let me delete it using either the delete key, backspace key, or the "Clear Format" command under "Edit." Any ideas there?


So I figured that one you can help me solve these problems.

Well, no one has replied, so I'll take a bite at it.

Try copy and pasting the entire contents of the Doc into a new Doc. Yeah, its grasping at straws, but hey, it just might work. And it only takes about 10 seconds to try it.

Thanks for the suggestion, Stompy, but it didn't work.

I've also redone each of the three tables from scratch and I still get the same error message.
