Microsoft Word/error message opening word documents


i just had my computer repaired and everytime i open a word 2010 document this message appears below:

compile error hidden in module AZ wizard.modul
I don't have any avery documents on my computer so how do get rid of this message

apparently it has something to do with Avery and i checked my hard drive and dont have any

i need to find a solution to this


Go to File | Options | Add-ins and look for the Avery Wizard in the list. When you select it, you can see the full file path at the bottom of the window. You can navigate to that path and delete the add-in. The likelihood is that it will be in Word's Startup folder. For more information, see Jay Freedman's answer at

Alternatively, if it is designated as a COM add-in (in the Type column in the list), select COM Add-ins beside Manage at the bottom and click Go... . In the COM Add-ins dialog, select the template and click Remove .

If it is designated as a template add-in, select Templates and click Go... . In the Templates and Add-ins dialog, select the template and click Remove . Depending on whether the add-in is loaded or not, the Remove button may not be enabled.

I've been using Word for Windows since version 2.0 (1992), and the more I learn about it, the more I realize how little I know. But I may know a few things that you don't, and I'll help if I can. I answer many questions every day in Microsoft's peer support forums and as a result have been awarded the MVP (Most Valuable Professional) designation by Microsoft Corporation. You may be able to find the answer to your question at the Word MVPs' FAQ site or at my own Word FAQ site, so please check those first! Please, no questions about VBA (macros), Registry editing, networks, or complex merges, as I have no experience with these aspects of Word, nor do I have any experience with Word for Mac. Please indicate which version of Word you are using; if you are not sure, see "What version of Word do I have?".


I have a master's degree in classics (Latin), which is surprisingly helpful, though I no longer teach. The things I am proudest of: Having raised two children to maturity, both Merit Scholars, both college graduates (one a philosophy major!), one Phi Beta Kappa (from Harvard!); having been made a Paul Harris Fellow by my Rotary club; having been designated a Microsoft MVP.
