docx will not open, there are problem with content

Hey

I have been writing a file and suddenly I can't scroll down to the last page.
I save and quit word and cannot reopen the file. All I get on the screen is:

The Office Open XML file cannot be open because there are problems with the contents.

Undefiend error:
Location: Part /word/document.xml, Line:2, Column:66227

This is the only copy I have of this file and really need it to open as soon as possible.

I have tried open the docx file as zip and opened the document.xml but I don't really understand how xml files work so I didn't really know what to do next.

Please help me...

Hey

No that is not the same problem. I can try to open the file in open office, but I don't know if it will help. Downloading open office now.

I open the file in open office and retrieved the text. Some margins have changed but it worked.

Thanks

Salle85,

I knew that it would not be a "perfect fit", but at least you didn't have to re-type 66227 columns.

If this is all set, can you accept the answer and close it out.

Thank you,
Kevin
