I repeatedly get this error when opening a Word doc in TagEditor.

Tech specs:

Windows XP
Word 2007
SDL Trados 2007, build 835

I have a 100 page Word doc. I divided it into 3 smaller parts.
While I am able to open Part 2 in TagEditor, translate it and save it again successfully, I cannot open Part 1 and Part 3!

I get the error:

(80005): object reference not set to an instance of an object

I checked the SDL Trados knowledge base, but didn't find anything.

Can someone help please?? It is urgent.

Thanks a lot

Font missing?? Jun 10, 2010


Your problem seems to be related with a font that's being used in your document but it's not installed in your system.

There is a similar post in the following link.


Hope this helps!

Thanks Eduardo, I figured it was a font problem and simply replaced the font with a regular one!

The system seems to work fine now.
