I am almost done with my seminar paper and have just tried to save the file (I do so every 10-15 minutes or so). The last time I tried to save it, I got an error message saying that word was unable to save the file because "too many files are open." However, this is the only word file that is open. I tried saving the filing under a different name and got the same message. I tried copying & pasting the document to another blank document and saving but I got the same message. I don't know what to do and I absolutely cannot afford to lose the 20+ pages. I have spent hours and hours writing this, and if I lose the material I don't know how I'd be able to finish this in time. If anyone knows what is going on and how to remedy it, please let me know. I really appreciate any help that anyone can provide. Thanks.
