FRONTPAGE 2003 "error reading file"

I use Frontpage 2003 to edit my html calendar.  And have used it for the last 2 years.  I just finished editing my calendar today, closed Frontpage, then decided to make a few more changes.  When I tried to open my calendar with Frontpage, it said "error reading file" and would not open it.  When I opened my calendar in an explorer window, it worked fine.  But, I still could not load it into Frontpage.  What has happened and how can I fix it?
Thanks!

Okay, new thought.  I HAVE to edit this calendar file.  Is there another html editor similar to Frontpage that I can use.  I just bought Macromedia Studio 8, but haven't loaded it yet.  I've got to get into this file somehow!

A few ideas:

1) Fixing the problem: The most likely scenario is that the file is locked somehow. Perhaps you have it open somewhere else?

2) Otherwise - its possible that the file is corrupted (but very unlikely) - if it works in a browser then there isn't much that could be wrong with it. Perhaps try opening it in MS Word?

- is there a problem with Frontpage? Can you edit anything else? If not, reinstall it from add/remove programs

- have you tried rebooting your machine, restarting Frontpage? That will fix 99% of issues.

Perhaps the file is damaged.  Is there a way to fix html files?

I just tried it in another pc with Frontpage, same error.  But, it will open fine in a browser.

I just used Word to delete out some stuff out of the file that Frontpage refuses to open, then I saved it under another name.  Now it opens.  Does Frontpage have a size limit?  The file that won't open is 11meg; the file that will open is 9 meg.
