====================================================================== 4.00 MACINTOSH kb3rdparty kbinterop kbole

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 4.0


When a Quickswitch has been done in a Word document with Paste Link, the error message “The application identifier should be 4 characters and end in !” indicates that Word version 4.00 cannot recognize the name of the source application in the identifier paragraph.

The source application name must be either Excel or SuperPaint or a four-character application signature, and it must be followed by an exclamation point. The four-character application signature is used by the Finder to identify an application.

To see the application signature, a utility program such as Fedit or ResEdit may be used.


For a complete list of possible error messages while using the Link commands, refer to “Reference to Microsoft Word,” Appendix C, pages 412-414.
