May I ask which version of "Word" you are referring to? Also, which brand is the Word application (Microsoft, Apachi, Apple, etc)?
I will be standing by.
Thank you,

The only version of Word that will not run on Yosemite is Microsoft Office 2004, you can upgrade to the latest or any version above Office 2004, so Office 2008 or above will run and it will open your Word files fine.

You can spend all the money you wish on upgrading to another version of Office or you can install the free version, which does work on Yosemite.
The free version of Open Office which will work on your Mac computer is found here:
If you wish, I can remote into your system and help you do this.
