    EDIT: Word isn't SAVING my work.

    In a crisis and TSR is the best place to come..

    So I've just put my entire dissertation into a single word document. When I try to save it it doesn't save. It will save the title of the document but it says 0KB and when i open it up there's a blank page. I still have my dissertation open but it's still called "Document1" and I can't save it!! Any help would be appreciated it's in for tomorrow!

    I thought it might be because the file is too big. But I have my friends dissertation all on one document and it's a lot bigger than mine

    Thank you!

    1) C+P the text into a notepad file and save that just to get a copy sol you don't lose the data.

    2) Try save-as, and don't us Doc1 as the filename, us something different.

    3) Try saving as a different file type, 9Ie. doc 2003 not 2010 or 2013)

    4) Try saving in a different place, like on the desktop

    5) C+P the text from the notepad file into a new document and try saving that.

    6) If all that fails, right-click on the 0kb document and goto properties, and post screenshots on here to see if we can help you further,
