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
