Unable to open up Microsoft 2007 when trying to edit a document on SP 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am experiencing the following issue:

    I am using SP 2007 and have Microsoft Office 2007 installed.  When I check-out a document and click on the document link, word will not open.  If I have the Word open when I'm clicking the document link, the document will open.  When I click on the document and open it in read-only mode, the document will open. 

    Does anyone have any ideas as to why Word will not start up with I click on a document that I have checked out?  The same thing happens if I try to open up the document in edit mode on the document drop-down.

  • Since most of the menu functions are JavaScript, I would check to make sure that the site is in your Trusted Zone in IE.  If it's not, some JavaScript might be blocked which could potentially cause this.


    I trust that answers your question...
