I am writing a word document from a template.
Every time i want to save it, it comes up with a message (sorry i dont have that message as not at work at moment) that wont let me save unless i change the name/version. Is there an unknown protection i perhaps dont know about?
its a work document so i need to keep the format the same e.g...
So i want to make changes today and tomorrow and keep it "WorkDoc v0.0.1", but it is making me change the name every time i make a change to the document, so im having to name it "WorkDoc v0.0.2" today, and tomorrow ill need to call it "WorkDoc v0.0.4". Before long ill end up with too many versions! (make more than 1 change a day!)
If your making that many alterations to a Template. Copy the Template > give your new document a Name which includes the date and time. e.g. Work-2018.06.18-22.35 and change the date and time every time you change it.
However, once you've copied the Template into another document, you can change that as often as you wish.
I don't think it's a protection issue, I think it's more along the lines of what fruitbat/wee eddie have said, above. By the sound of it you're trying to save what you think is a .doc, but maybe the dialogue box which pops ups says something like 'do you wish to make changes to the template', which is a .dot.
