Hello

I am in the middle of typing a multi-page paper. I have not yet saved the document. Right now MS Word ('97) has frozen up!!!

I cannot print what I have typed so far...

I am afraid that if I exit out of Word, I will lose my work...

WHAT CAN I DO???!!!???

Thanks
Gandalf

I learned the hard way to save documents as soon as you start them. I even have my computer configured to automatically save every minute so I don't lose too much text if something happens.

I don't know if there's anything you can do to save it now.

Best thing to do if it happens again...
Close everything else you can, and hit the power button on your 'puter.
If you end task on Word (by Ctrl+Alt+Del), the autorecover will NOT work. BUT, if your 'puter thinks you lost power, it saves that file...dumb, huh?
