Ambiguous name detected: tmp.dde error with Word file Sharepoint 2007

Posted: December 22, 2011 in Office Issue, sharepoint 2007

Open a word document in Sharepoint, it gives an error “”Ambiguous name detected: tmp.dde”


·         Researched on the above error and found that if we rename and reopen the word it will recreate it.

·         Did the same.

·         Close all the word document and rename NORMAL.DOTM

·         You will find that under :

·         C:\Documents and Settings\UserAccount\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

·         Open a blank word document and close it.

·         Check the location again, you will find that normal.dotm will be created.

·        Open the word document from the Sharepoint site and it works fine

  1. I am currently using Tumblr as my default system.

    I want kinda something similar to what you have. Great job,
    I think I have to invest into a proper website.
