A dialog box is open. Please close it and try again.
This operation cannot be completed; to close the dialog box the Contact form must be dismissed. Subsequent attempts to perform the same operation will result in a similar error.
If you want to link a file to a contact, use Outlook rather than through the contact as viewed in Word.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
To link a file to a contact in Outlook, follow these steps:
  1. With the Contact form open, on the Action menu, click Link and then click File.
  2. In Choose a File, click the file you want to link and then click Insert.
  3. A Journal entry is created to record the activity. The link to the file is preserved in the Journal item and also appears on the Activities tab of the contact.
