How to Fix Microsoft Word Common Errors

Microsoft is one of the most popular applications among computer users worldwide, and the complete MS Office suite includes applications for creating spreadsheets, documents, presentations, and more.

The latest versions of Office are 2016 and 365. With these two versions on your computer, you can perform many complex tasks in the blink of an eye, also without using any other applications.

Among all these applications, MS Word is used to create documents. When creating a document, you can easily insert a chart, table, image, shapes, and more into it.

Just like in any other application, you can also find errors in words. The most common mistakes are:

Runtime error
Compilation error on hidden drive
Word cannot open this document (the file you are trying to open)
The command cannot be executed because the plug-in template opening dialog is invalid
Subscript out of range
Drive name could not be found

The errors listed above occur when an add-in in a startup folder is not compatible with Microsoft Word.
