In attempting to delete a word 2003 document (from my Word 2010 programme) I keep being told the document can not be deleted because it is still open!
Oh really! Well not that I can see.Advise please.

Is any instance of Word running? Anything in Task Manager? [CTRL] + [SHIFT] + ESC].

If all else fails restart the machine.

The way youre saying it, you opened it in word 2010. So, it'll be open. Quit word 2010 then find the 2003 doc then delete it

Thanks guys. Yes Speedy, your comment would be close to the mark in this instance. Cato - and thats how I got rid of it. Turned the PC off, went to bed, started up the PC next day and - choice! - document gone.
