What happens when you select the document in Windows Explorer and then press
the Delete key? Do you get a message of some sort?

Looks like part of the file extinction is missing. It looks like “.d”. It
should look like “.doc” but I can’t fix it.

With Word closed use Start=>Find/Search for files using
~$*.*;*.tmp
delete those and see if you can then delete the Word file.

The file was not a tmp file.
I deleted the file by opening a DOS session, going to the directory, and
deleting with the command Del In*
Thanks, WestTexasBliss
