Excel and Word crash when trying to save files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was using Office 2003, no problems, now recently installed Office 2016, will not save or save as old files,  Even a new file with virtually now data in any cells.

    It appears as though when doing a save excel creates a temporary file. Then adds the data and then saves the file for use.  In this process the temporary file it creates is given a name that exceeds the 256 character limit on file names.  

    How can I fix the problem please.
