Word 4.00 message: “Access to this File Required. Enter Y to Retry or Q to Quit Word”

Word 5.00 message: “Access to this file required. Enter Y to retry or Q to quit and lose changes”

You pressed ESC in response to the message “Enter Y to retry access to <filename>.” Word cannot continue without the file named.

Do one of the following:

  1. Press Y if you think you’ve corrected the problem by changing or properly inserting a disk.
  2. If the problem is a physical disk problem or disk error, press Q to quit Word.

This problem may also be caused by a missing TMP file. This can be solved on systems using a hard drive by setting a location for TMP files on the hard drive with the following DOS command

SET TMP=C:<directory>

which sets a directory for TMP file location. This command can be included as part of the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
