Hi all,

When I try to save a Trados file as word document, I am getting this error message:

An error occurred while converting fields back to Microsoft Word format:Possible field(s) deletion.

Can somebody help me with this?

Thanks

The best help is you own help Jun 17, 2011

Run the tag verifier, correct the tag errors reported and try again.
In the future do not delete tags and do not ingore warnings unless you are sure what you are doing.

Thanks Jerzy,

Although I did not deleted any tags but for some reasons it does work.

There must have been a tag deleted Jun 18, 2011

otherwise the error would not mention missing fields.
However, sometimes the error is in the source file already - this is why it is recommended to do a test before you start the translation.

Same problem May 29, 2012

Hi,

I have the same error but I ran F8 and it said that it was OK. No probl, no error.

I don't understand. And it still does not save my target file.

The source file is word format with some pics, charts, etc...


Please help.
