I guess this issue should be nailed down... mostly this has to deal with
database size, limits and compatibility level and proper file name......

Please look at the below workarounds-

Something that you could test is to
-upload some other file in a different document folder...
- check for the size limit of the file you are trying to upload

I was not able to load the document into the document library at all,
but I could load it into a site. The doc is just a word document no special
characters or anything.

Alright..please confirm if you've done this as I dont really understand your
- did u upload different file with different name of mimimum size succssfully?
-now, did u try to upload your 'original' file to a different library?

The last thing that I could guess might be, the doc library you are trying to
upload the file might be corrupted... not sure if this really helps...

OK cool it works now. The whole reason was the dang document was built in office
97. I converted it to 2003 and it worked just fine.

My next question is how do I remove a user completely out of Sharepoint? She
was jill smith and got married and now is jill joe. So when I try to add her
after completly removing her(or atleast what I thought removed her) it says I
cant add this user as she already exists.?

Good. Remove here from site collection administration page and add her back


1. Use on of the following methods to connect to the Manage Site Collection

and then press ENTER: http://ServerName/_layouts/1033/Siteusrs.aspx

in the address bar of your Web browser, and then press ENTER:
2. Click to select the check box that is next to the name of the user who you
want to remove, and then click Remove Selected Users.

Note If more than 100 users are in the site collection, the user may not be
listed on the current page. To view additional users, scroll to the bottom of
the list of users, and then click Next. 3. Click OK when you are prompted to
