I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Frank,

Here are a some suggestions:

(1) Can you post the Details, per the image you posted?

(2) Make a couple copies of the file.

(3) Upload into Google Doc, see if it opens up and is readable.

(4) If you access to OpenOffice or can load it, try opening with Open Office

Martin,
I found another way. The document was sent as an email attachment. So I went to sent items, located the email with the document and open the file. IT WORKED!
I appreciate your suggestions and will keep them in mind in case the problem occurs again.
