This was happening intermittently - lost a few pages along the way because of it - now it seems to be happening all the time - I can't save a document to save my life!

No matter how many times I try to save an unnamed Document via "Save As," it simply doesn't happen. Before it would "save" it with the name I entered...but the named document is blank!

But now it doesn't even do that: no matter how many times I "Save As"...it just doesn't happen - a .docx with that name never appears/doesn't exist. What I was trying to save still sits there as an unnamed Document. (A couple of times I closed that version expecting to see it saved as a named .docx, which didn't exist and I wound up having to rewrite it from scratch.)

I was able to save the document I'm currently working on in .txt format. Then I "saved as" the .txt version as a Word document - and for whatever reason it worked, I finally have a Word .docx along with the .txt version.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Just saved a new document as a .docx...& this time it worked! Go figure...

Any suggestions out there?

Thanx much!

Are you having difficulties saving to certain locations? For example, does saving to the hard drive work while saving to OneDrive fails?
