Hi everyone,

I have an error message in Trados Studio 2011 that says

"an error occurred when converting files back to MS word format. Possible field(s) deletion",

then as origin it says
"file writing"

and when I click on it, it doesn't give me a line in the text where I messed up a tag or something so I can fix it. It seems to be general and I cannot save the target content.

this, of course, shortly before (or actually after) a deadline for delivery...

can anyone help?
Thanks!
Sibyl

If your original file is .docx, May 31, 2012

convert it to .doc (i.e. Word 2003),
reprocess the file with Trados.

Or, if your original file contains self-created table of content ,
delete this table,
reprocess the file,
create target file and
recreate table of content.
