Click OK and try the Advantage report.

Note: Error might also occur if another user is creating the same report for the same project.

It can also be caused when an orphaned WinWord.exe process running in the background. If this process is found running under the troubled user in Task Manager, end the process.

Then launch word manually and clear any recovered documents it may load up.
