The Word for Windows error message
“Cannot create work file”
occurs if Word cannot create a temporary work file for storing editing changes.
This error can occur for the following reasons:
- A “SET TEMP=” variable has not been set. Add the command "SET TEMP=C:" to the AUTOEXEC.BAT on the hard disk.
- The disk temporary files are written to (where SET TEMP= is set to) is full. Remove unnecessary files to free up hard disk space.
- If running on a network, verify that the network drive you write temporary files to is connected and that you have write privileges.
