Cannot read wrd.tmp File

A user's system crashed in the middle of creating a new Word Document.  the ~wrd.tmp file is there, but when I open it it's all scrambled symbols with no text.  Is there anything I can do with this to recover it?

1. On the File menu, click Open.

3. In the Open dialog box, select your document.
4. Point to the arrow on the Open button, and then click Open and Repair. (There's a black arrow that opens a drop-down list)

Good luck!

Word uses a variety of temp files.  It operates out of these temp files, not the original .doc file.  It's perfectly fine for Word to create these files.  When Word closes, it should delete these files automatically.

Move along, nothing to see here...
