Hi all!

I have been working on a large MS Word file on Studio 2011, and when trying to get the target text on Word I got this error message:

"Falie to save target content: Missing bookmark end tag with name: _DV_M457 Writing to Word document not possible"

Apparently the problem concerns the very first line of the bilingual file (where the orange arrows are but no text is written), as I realized throgh the ordinary F8 check, but I cannot manage to solve the problem and at the moment I have no choice but to copy/paste every single segment to the original Word file...

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thank you in advance.
