I'd saved the document and closed MS Word 2007 but reopened the document to
send it as an email via Outlook. MS Word 2007 insisted that I establish an
Outlook profile instead of allowing me to use my Windows Mail account...???
My Outlook email resulted in an "object can not be found" error message.
This was my first email using the new Outlook 2007 and, despite having
received a successful email test, I decided to send the document as an
attachment using Windows Mail. I'd previously used Mail to send several
other emails without difficulty. When this resulted in a similar error, I
didn't even think about the document still being open in MS Word 2007.
I sure wish the error prompt had said "...file in use..." instead of
"...files could not be found..."!
Of course, I still don't understand why I received a similar error while
trying to email the document from within MS Word 2007.
Thanks, again - Jeff
