i am running officemac 2008 12.1.3. and trying to save to a local non-network drive. Every single update has failed to eliminate this problem and it's rather annoying. I'll have any number (even just one) of word documents open, and at some point i'll go to save (or the autorecover will try to save the file) and i get a popup saying that too many files are open. I ultimately have to exit word WITHOUT saving the changes to the document, lose data, and restart word to fix it again... until it comes back. This is sh*t. Is there a fix? So tired of these antics that I might switch to open office.
