Dear All,
good afternoon.
I work with Trados 2007 (original licence).
I have just translated a Word file using Tag Editor with no difficulty.
When I come to cleaning the file with Workbench - Tools - Clean Up I get this error message:
-2147467259 Error while converting to Word doc

Any idea of what is the problem? I don't know what to do and delivery term is near...
I am currently using Word 2010 and the agency is using Word 2003.
Is there any problems with the two?

Good luck,
