We started using Microsoft Word Web App in the office but I am encountering this problem wherein I cannot open a document. I can’t open the document with MS Word since I don’t have one installed in my office PC.
Can I troubleshoot and resolve this by myself or I might need our technical support guy? If I can troubleshoot this by myself, the please give advise. Thanks!
Here below is the error message I encountered.
Microsoft Word Web APP:
Microsoft Word Web cannot open this document for viewing because of an unexpected error. To view this document, open it in Microsoft Word.
