    Hi Guys

    I am trying to insert a zipped folder in a word (*.doc ) file but everytime I am trying to insert it , its crashing as IEXPLORE.exe is starting to use a huge amount of memory .

    Any idea how to do it.

    This is how I am trying to insert it

    Insert-->Object-->Create from file ---> and then selecting the zipped folder.


    Can u guys try it on your system and tell me what am I doing wrong

    Try simply drag and drop the object .Or maybe the file is too large.

    Hossie -


    I am using Word 2002 on an XP machine. Here's what I did...

    - I created a word doc and zipped it

    - I opened a new blank word doc (call it newdoc)

    - I did a cut/paste of the zipped file into newdoc. It appears as an object in newdoc. If I click on the object, it launches winzip - just as if I clicked on the zipped file from outside of Word.

    - If I do an "Insert File" command in newdoc and attempt to insert the zipped file, I get gibberish from Word - it is attempting to read the zip file and is asking me "select encoding that makes your document readable"

    I guess my question to you is - why do you want to insert a zipped file into a word file? Are you expecting to have text inserted? If yes, I'm thinking you should unzip it first.
