Hi all, yesterday night I was working on a very important document in Word 2007. While saving it Word started acting up (this program isn't responding, blablabla), but I managed to control it and save the file on a USB flashdrive. Today I want to continue working on it and I get this: "office open xml file cannot be opened because there are problems with its content" If I click OK Word asks me to confirm if the file is safe etc, but confirming this leads to nothing. ***??? I opened the file in Open Office and managed to get 5 out of 13 pages, the other 8 didn't show up. Someone suggested opening it up in Word 2003, which I did, but to no avail. Is this really 3 days of work gone? Please say it isn't so Can anyone help me? In the rapidshare file is the corrupted docx file. If you think you can help me, please download this and try opening it. Thanks again. http://rapidshare.com/files/208685480/thesis.docx.html Edit; I tried opening it with Winrar as some have suggested in similar threads on other forums. The scary thing is that in the Xml files only the first 5 pages are visible. The other 8 are simply gone.
