    Word could not create the work file. Check the Temp... Word 2010


    I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and Office 2010.

    All of a sudden, when I tried to paste text I copied from an internet page, I got a message "Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable" .

    It worked fine this morning and is working fine now.

    I had to paste it into Word Pad to use it.

    I made no changes to Word. Any idea what is going on?
    Thanks, cb

    Did you check the temp environment variable as it suggested?

    Open a command prompt.
    Type echo %temp%
    What is the result?

    On my Win 8.1 computer, it's set to: C:\Users\accountname\AppData\Local\Temp
