For the first problem, I'm pretty sure I can't attempt to open the document with 2003 because it is no longer on my laptop. I just tried to open it on my desktop with Office Word Starter 2010 and it did not open. The file I am trying to open was created with 2007 by the way.
At this time, three files. I just finished trying to fix the files with the Open and Repair feature and the Text Recovery converter. Both options did not help. With the Open and Repair feature, I receive the same error messages. With the Text Recovery feature, the files open, but the original text is not present. Instead, a string of foreign characters is in place of the original text.
File number is XXXXX
No I do not. How does a file become corrupted and how can I keep this from happening to any other files?
