Can you please post what the actual error message is?  

It's like calling your auto mechanic and saying "My car won't work....what's wrong with it?".

sorry about that it was a word file.  and there some excel files.

word file error.

header record delimiter:

then it gives dropdown choices :
field delimiter
record delimiter

right now they are both set for none.  someone else created these files.

thanks
