I'm trying to clean up my translated file, but the following error message appears:

Word could not convert the file due to an OLE/COM or file name error.

If you don't need the TM right now and need a quick cleanup... Apr 30, 2007

...I suggest to use the Macro function in Word to clean the files: tw4winClean.Main

This should do the job.

I sometimes use this when time becomes short...and later when you have some time you can align source and target files and still update your TM...

Good luck!

Clean up tip works well May 8, 2007

Hello Kerstin,
Thank yo uso much for this tip....The Clean-up function still refuses to work afetr many re-installation, I did send my print-sreen shots to SDL SUpport service,,,it takes about 6 days to get an answer as I do not have a support agreement. Too bad that the TM cnno tbe updated at the same time.
Kind regards,
Lucie
