Cannot Copy File to New Location in Second Screen Group

PSS ID Number: Q42870 Article last modified on 11-02-1994




In Microsoft Word version 5.0, if you try to copy a file that is loaded in another location (screen group), the process cannot be completed because Word locks the file against reads from other processes. You must use the Transfer Clear command in the Word window or Quit Word to free the document for copying.

Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Start Word.
  2. Load a document.
  3. Switch to another screen group.
  4. Try to copy the file that is loaded to some other location.
