Hello everyone,

I am using (or attempting to use) tageditor to translate a word doc with a lot of footnotes. It is part of a series of 3 docs and the first one worked just fine, unfortunately when I try to open any of the other two docs I get this message.

Have any of you seen it before? Does anyone know what I can do to solve it?

I've tried searching the forums but I haven't found anything specific on endnotes with tageditor.

So if anyone could help I would be very grateful....

Thank you,

Have you tried the following?

1. Open source DOC file in Word, save it as RTF file, close.
2. Open RTF file in Word, save it as new DOC file, close.
3. Open new DOC file in TagEditor and see if it opens without errors.

Sometimes, it works.

Hello Oscar and thank you for the tip,

I'm in a bit of a rush so I manually removed all the footnotes from one of the documents and I am carrying on this way at the moment.

However, I am almost done with it now and I will be sure to try your tip with the next document

Thank you!

Tried this and still didn't work Mar 18, 2008

Hi, I am dealing with this issue also. I'm using Trados Tag Editor 2007 with SP2.

First the word doc gave error: (80005) cannot be opened due to tracked changes not accepted or rejected (summarized)

I made a change to the Word_1_0_0_0.xml and Word2007_1_0_0_0.xml files. Changing the NonAcceptedOrRejectedChangesHandling from "Default" to "Ignore" and now it gives me this error.

(80005): Error while reading endnotes or footnotes.

Has anyone else had either of these problems and found a way around it?

My Word file also has many headers and footers as well as images within them.
