Hi there! My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows. I'm sorry that you're having this issue. It would be my pleasure to help you resolve this. It's very possible that when your computer shut down unexpectedly due to the power surge that the program files for Word were damaged. The first thing that I would suggest is uninstalling WORD and then reinstalling. Do you have installation media for Word in order to do this?
If you will go to finder and documents, you should see your report there. You can email it to your self and try to open it on another device, or if you have a Google account, you can try to use Google docs to view it. Alternatively, If you 'd like to upload it here by clicking on the paperclip to attach it, I can convert it to a pdf file which you should be able to view.
If you have a recent Time Machine backup of your MAC, we can restore from it and get Word working again. If not, we could install Open Office which is similar to Word and will allow you to open, view, and edit Word documents.
If you'd like, I can perform these steps for you while you watch via the Premium Service of Secure Remote Assistance. This is completely optional. If you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and work on the issue for you. If you do not choose to take this service, but need more help, we can continue here.
