When you set the Documents path in the Options dialog box (on the Tools menu, click Options), to a Network location on a Banyan Vines or NetWare network, the Open and Save As dialog boxes may revert to the Word program directory.
NOTE: The Word program directory is the current location of the Winword.exe file. Mapping a Network Drive Letter or using UNC pathing doesn't seem to change this behavior.
Change the Open or Save As dialog boxes to the correct network location before you open or save your file.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
This problem does not occur in Word 2000.
