You may receive one of the following error messages when trying to save, open, or close a document in Word, or while performing other Windows functions while Word is running:
When you add a large number of styles to a document (or to several documents), the Word temporary scratch file, ~Wrs0001.tmp may become extremely large. Closing the original document has no effect on the scratch file.
These error messages may occur if the ~Wrs0001.tmp file becomes too large, causing your computer to run out of disk space.
To work around this problem, quit and restart Microsoft Word. Quitting Word will remove the scratch file.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Word 97. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
