Word Error Message: “Bad Command or File Name”

You chose Library Run, but DOS cannot find the program or command that you typed.

Do one of the following:

  1. Check your typing and retype correctly if necessary.
  2. If you have a disk system, make sure that COMMAND.COM is on the disk.
  3. Check the disk for the program or command you want to run.
  4. Insert the correct disk if necessary.
  5. You might have typed an incorrect path to the program or command. Re-enter the program or command.
  6. If you typed a DOS internal command, run COMMAND.COM, then retry the command.

In Word version 5.50, select File DOS Commands (ALT, F, D) and enter Command to shell out to DOS.
