    Hi everyone, hope someone can help. I am running windows 7 Ultimate and I used wordpad to modify a downloaded document which happend to be a reclaiming your ppi insurance template off moneysupermarket.com

    It def saved but it saved to a temp folder.

    I have tried accessing it from opening wordpad and clicking ppistep1 and it says an error has occured and it cannot be opened.

    I have done a search too and nothing appears.

    I can't think of anything else :( anyone got any ideas?

    Also it said update document I think if i remember rightly when I clicked something if that helps? I'm not familar with wordpad having an update document facility.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    If its a downloaded form off the net I'd be tempted to save mucking about and just download it and fill it in again tbh.
