    My Operating System is Windows ME and I am using MS Outlook 2000.

    My problem is, I cannot open attachments that are named resume.doc.
    I keep getting the following error message:

    "Can't create file. Right-click the folder you want to create the file in and click on properties menu to check your permissions for the folder."

    I can open anything else, resume1.doc, resume2.doc, etc... but not resume.doc. Is there a setting I need to change or something?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    First, I would show the file extension to be sure that it isn't an .exe

    # On your desktop, open My Computer.
    # Select the Tools menu, & then select Folder Options
    # In the Folder Options windows, click on the View tab.
    # Uncheck the box next to "Hide file extensions for known file types" then click
    ok. Next look at the file with the extension.

    If it is ok, then just right-click on
    it and save it to a file. Then open Microsoft Word and use Word's
    File->Open menu to select the file just saved.

    Thanks Augie65,

    I tried your suggestions and it didn't work. They are .doc files with no hidden extensions but I cannot save them either. I get the same error message when I try.

    Thanks everyone, I deleted a file in my temp files and it seems to be working fine now. The file was labeled OLK8351.
