I am practicing using Trados, and was just cleaning my first file when this message appearaed:

(-2147467259): The target document cannot be created because the tag structure in the TagEditor document is invalid.
File skipped!

What does that mean? I saved it as a doc. file. Not sure if that was the problem?

More information needed to solve your problem Oct 30, 2010

Do I guess it correctly that you had a source doc file, opened it in Tag Editor, translated, saved as TTX, and tried to clean it up with Workbench? If that's the case, then the problem seems to be as the message says - there's something wrong with the tags in the TTX document.

Try using the QA plugins in Tag Editor to determine where the errors are and fix them (the Generic Tag Verifier should do). If that doesn't help, open the source file in Tag Editor again and re-translate the file using the TM you already have. In TE, try the Save as Target command, point to the the source file and confirm.
