How to view error signatures if an Office program experiences a serious error and quits

INTRODUCTION

If a Microsoft Office program experiences a serious error and quits, your computer records an error signature that describes the error that occurred. This article explains how to view these error signatures.

More Information

The error signature contains information, such as the program name, error name, and module name, that Microsoft uses to further develop and improve Microsoft products.

If you have an Internet connection, you can send this information directly to Microsoft by using the Office Application Error Reporting tool. If you choose to report this information, the tool checks to see if a solution to the problem is available, and if so, sends that information to you.

If you choose not to use the Office Application Error Reporting tool, you can use the information in the error signature to search the Microsoft Knowledge Base directly.

To find the error signature on your computer after a program stops responding, use the appropriate method for your operating system.
