      "word could not create the work file - check the temp environment variable"

      Applies To: Office | Office 2007 | Microsoft Office Word | Windows Vista
      Dear folks

      I've attempted at least 6 searches across different parts of the microsoft site to find some instructions to fix this error (message received when trying to attach word 2007 vista files to an email). 

      Started about a day ago and I've already done a system restore which has not fixed it

      must be looking at the wrong spots on this website because I would be certain the instructions to fix this would surely already exist. 

      Thanking you for your assistance

      Torrie
