Hi experts,

I saved a Word 2003 file with Word 2007.

Now, for some reason, I cannot open the file with either Word 2003 or Word 2007.

When I tried to open it, I got a message:
"Word was unable to read this document. It may be corrupt. Try one or more of the following:
'Open and repair file, open the file with the Text Recovery converter' ".

What may be the best solution?

Thanks a lot!

Thank you so much for your kind tip.

I tried your tip, but it did not work.

I also tried Text recovery Converter from MS. It did not work either.

Thanks a lot!
