Why can't I open pre-existing word documents?

While using either a VPN or the LAN, when I try to open word documents that already exist on the server I get the message:
" There is not enough memory or disk space to complete this operation "
I can create new .docs and open them, close them and sync them. I just can't open the existing DATA.
Whats Up?

Were the existing files saved in an older version of word?  If so, the problem is likely that your system is running out of resources while opening and converting the file to 2007.  You can try increasing your available virtual memory, closing all other programs, or temporarily disabling any antivirus software.  You can also try downloading the Microsoft 2003 word viewer (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=95e24c87-8732-48d5-8689-ab826e7b8fdf&displaylang=en) and confirm that this is the case if you are able to open the files with that.
