Find and replace corrupts MS word 2007 docs

Post by kleino » Tue Jul 15, 2008 8:54 pm

After find and replace, my MS Word 2007 documents are all corrupt.
(they were all saved as .doc files)
I have backups but is there a way to prevent this in the future?

Please verify that the following options are enabled:
Menu - Action - Options - Find - "Find in MS Office Files"
Menu - Action - Options - Replace - "Replace in MS Office Files"
Menu - Action - Options - Batch Replace - "Replace in MS Office Files"

Otherwise (if the options are disabled) AFR will consider the files as plain text files and it may damage the files. If the options are enables AFR cannot damage the files because it's using Microsoft's native mechanisms to work with MS Word files.
