    I've got a document about 41 pages, broke into multiple sections. Track changes have been on, I've been able to edit the file for a while up until an hour. Now, when i make any changes this document just closes, this has been tried and same phenomenon occurs on 3 other computers, so it must be something with the file? Any idea would be appreciated.

    Some interesting characteristics:
    when change is made word shuts down.
    but when you use auto recover and word opens back up, the change that caused word to close is actually made.

    do you have the remove hidden data feature installed and turned on?
    Otherwise, I would suspect a corrupt Normal.dot file - close Word, find and rename or delete it (Word will rebuild it when you open it again).
