Are you able to create a document using MS Office 2010 (either excel or word document) ?
If that is successful, then R u able to open the word document in MS Office 2003 first ?
If it is opening then, try to save it again & open it in MS Office 2010 again. It should solve.
If not then reinstall MS Office 2010

chris_bottomley:

even if the file was saved in compatability application office 2010 shuld open the file
the compatibility applocation made for older versions for supporting newer versions.
perhaps the filters in 2010 have become corrupted - a reinstall of 2010 should fix - can you open them on another pc with 2010?

Hi All,
Thanks for your inputs, I will try your suggestions and update you.
whoa easy there.... reinstall of the application is last resort.
Try to open elsewhere, create a 2003 version and then attempt to open in 2010, then maybe try a repair... if all that fails then perhaps consider reinstalling the application.

But not if we are talking single document single problem though
>>> even if the file was saved in compatability application office 2010 shuld open the file

Not so in practice ... and even if it does in what way would the activity be negative.  It establishes that the document can be opened ... or not in the native version,  before it is re-tried (post save) in 2010.
