The error box TITLE is wierdly the document's full path name, titled: "C:\Users\Me\Documents\Word Docs\file name.docx" with an error message inside the popup dialog box: "There was a problem sending the command to the program." (? A file directory path problem I assume?)
What I changed: added subfolder "Word Docs" for all my Word documents location, and moved/cut Word docs to be pasted in new subfolder as their new location home. Cut & paste problem? Didn't drag and move??? Forget which I did. Critical diff?
Environment: Windows 7 64-bit; Word 2007; .docx files; File Properties' path:
Desktop\Libaries\Documents\Word Docs\file name.docx
Clicking "Documents" libary from the Windows 7 Start menu... the Documents libaries new folder file tree/structure visually appears proper & in order!!!!:
.........Word Docs <<(new subfolder)
............docx file population
(Question: Why do my Excel documents, which open fine, not list in the file path "\My Documents\" which visually shows up in the Start menu's Document libary visual file structure? Word doesn't either... but they don't open.)
The move of my Word files LOOKED good; everything moved to the new "Word Docs" subfolder. So... WTF? Before, when everything worked FINE, my Excel, Word docs and various files were all comingled together UNDER "My Documents" in quite an unorderly mess; yet access was fine.
Attempted fix (failed): Copying & Pasting the subject Word file and putting it back up one AND two path steps into (under) the "Documents" folder (to match its "Properties") AND MY Documents folders where it was before... still gives me NO access the Word .docx file!
Wrong approach? What did I do wrong?: Trying to add organization and file structure to my 64-bit Windows 7 "My Documents" libary subfolder, I created a new "Word Docs" SUBsubfolder. Simple organization, I thought, seperating my various Excel workbooks, Word docs into their own subfolders. (Why Microsoft Word 2007 didn't do this at the installation is befudling to me.) I then moved or "cut" my many Word docx's, all of them, from My Documents... down one step to the newly created subfolder "Word Docs". That must have messed with the old proper order of the file directories and technical locations, obviously. ?
A good month has passed since doing so.
NOW... I can NOT recall if I tested access to them or not after doing so. The Libary structure tree appeared in order and they all showed up in Window Explorer so I thought I was good to go. It all looked like a good transfer. But NOW, a good month later, they won't open; from either within Word 2007 open, or from the Documents folder with Word 2007 closed. Copying the file and pasting it back to its original location... to both My Documents and Documents doesn't fix the NO access problem either.
I can NOT be certain if this is a related or unrelated problem, is correlated, or has to do with my new subfolder creation and the Word 2007 documents moving there, as it was a month ago I created this new subfolder. Don't know if this is "file tree" problem, Word 2007 problem, or .docx file opening problem ... or a problem that has taken place independent and after the addition of the new subfolder. I am assuming I screwed with file directory location and messed up internal addressing.
How do I fix this?
