Microsoft Word 2003 Normal.dot file document problem

Microsoft Word has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. After a document named Normal.dot is placed in the User or Workgroup templates folder and you try to start Word 2003, you may receive the error message. This behavior may occur if the global template (Normal.dot) is actually a Word document named Normal.dot. When Word attempts to use the document as its default global template, you receive the error message.

Click 'Yes' on the message that follows the error message: 'Word has detected a problem with the existing normal.dot. Would you like to create a new normal.dot?'.

A Word document (.doc) renamed with a Word template (s.dot) extension does not open in Word because template files contain a file format that is different from that of document files.

To resolve this issue:
1) Click 'Yes' on the message that follows the error message: 'Word has detected a problem with the existing normal.dot. Would you like to create a new normal.dot?'.
2) After you do this, a new Normal.dot template file is created and Word starts as expected.

I hope that It help you to fix microsoft word problems with normal.dot file.
