Temporary files
When I'm saving in DOC or Excel file, a temp file gets created automatically. That happens only when I'm saving the file to 2003 format though I'm using MS 2007.

Software/Hardware used:
MS Office 2007

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Don’t be concerned about that “TMP” file, because that file is a temporary file being made by Microsoft Office/Excel when your trying to edit/save/opening a file (think of it as a scratch pad). This file also will disappear when you close out the Microsoft Office/Excel.

    Oh ok, more info is always helpful :-) Try running a repair installation of Office. Make sure all MS updates have also been downloaded and applied. Was this an upgrade from 2003 to 2007 or a fesh install of 2007?

    To run a repair go to the control panel, add/remove choose to modify your Office installation and you will get the option to repair it. If that does not help try an ininstall/reinstall.
