I have a MacBook Pro and all of the sudden I can't open MS Word. I can open all other Office applications. What's up? I have reinstalled, reset PRAM, done a Safe Boot, and Repaired Permissions. Nothing works. Help...

Could you elaborate on which version of MS Word you have and what version of OS X your MBP is currently running?

OK, thanks for posting back info. Are you getting any errors when trying to open Word? Also, you stated that you reinstalled Word, however, Word can not be reinstalled by itself without reinstalling Office 2011. And, unless you completely uninstall Office 2011, a reinstall will not solve errors.

Uninstall instructions for Office 2011 are here. Let us know.
