MS Word is contacting the wrong server. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently did a server conversion and the name of our main server changed.  When we open some documents in MS Word, the bottom gives us that "contacting \\server\share\ for information.  That is the wrong server.  If you click cancel, it ends it and finds the file. 

    How do I change what server MS Word is contacting?

    Thank you.

    It seems to be more related to Microsoft Word issue, I recommend you to post in Microsoft Office forums for a better assistance. The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thank you for your understanding.
