Help! I have nearly finished a big project and am trying to view the target file in Word.
The message I get when I try and do so is:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
I have gone through the document, checked missing segments and tags, etc.. to no avail.
I look forward to someone's solution to this pb.

Can we see the file? Jan 24, 2011

Hi Hilary,

Can you send me your SDLXLIFF? The error message is quite generic, often because the information returned to Studio is inadequate to be more specific, but if we can see the file we may be able to help.
