Please help me fix this problem. I have no idea what a "file permission

error" is... I've been using Office 2000, I still am using Office 2000 and

this is the first time i've seen this. I was trying to save to a 1.44 meg

floppy. The file is 224 k. Please tell me why i can't save this file. (By the

way, the disk has 1.11 megs of used space)

    • Don't ever save directly to a floppy (or any other removable media).

      Instead, save to the HD, then Copy or Send to the floppy.

    • I'll take Suzanne's advice one step further. When working within Word, act

      as if your floppy drive does not exist! Don't do anything with a file on a

      floppy from within Word. If you do, eventually you will lose work, probably

      at the most inopportune time.

    • Don't ever save directly to a floppy (much less open directly from one).

      That's one of the quickest ways to corrupt your file. Instead, save to the

      hard drive and then copy or Send to the floppy.
