I try to open a new segment and i can´t it says: "Translation unit seems to be open. Close it before you open a new one."
aparently all segments are closed. but, anyway, I order it to close and visual basic pops up to tell me that there is an error "5"

any ideas of what is happening here?

Use the fix document (Alt+Ctrl+U) command Nov 26, 2006

Somehow - and it happens to all of us - a segment was not closed properly or the TRADOS brackets got misplaced, but it's nothing that this command would not fix. Of course you will have to fix the broken segment.

When worse comes to worst you can always take the original text and pretranslate it up to the point where the problem surfaced.
