The error that I am getting is:
"The file was created in a pre-release version of Word 2007 and cannot be opened in this version."

Now that happened when I had before a pre-release version of Word 2007.
Now I purchased the full version of Office 2007 Professional and I am trying to open this document but I get the error above. Please help.

Thank you.
