Hello, everyone!
Today I find a problem which I have never met before.
Now I'm using TRADOS Translator's Workbench 7.0 (quite old), Tageditor, and Office XP.

I analyzed a ttx file generated from a Japanese xls file, then I used "Export unknown segments" to export a rtf file, which I wanted to translate in Word. When I tried to open this rtf file, it said "the name or path of this document is invalid..."

I have succefully opened the ttx and the source xls files, which means they are ok. I even tried another xls and ttx, and everything is fine. But why this particular word file is faulty? How can I solve this problem?

BTW: I have tried the "open and repair" method in Word, but it didn't work.

Any suggestion is appreciated. Many many thanks.
