Hello! I added the Multiterm template to my Word 2007, and when I try to add a termbase form the Multiterm toolbar in Word, a "Connection error" with an number appears. It seems it cannot connect with Multiterm, isn't it? How can I solve this problem? Thanks for your help.

Delete session file Jan 17, 2009

From SDL Knowledge base:

The file saves the last settings that you made when working with termbases. In some situations, when trying to reload such settings, it searches for a session that does not exist anymore and the error "(-2147467261)(:null)" or "Connection error 2147467261" is displayed.

It should be sufficient for you to simply delete the MultiTerm7dot.xml from the folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Trados\MultiTerm (if using Windows XP)


C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\Trados\MultiTerm (if using Windows Vista)

Replace [UserName] with the name under which you are currently logged on to Microsoft Windows.
