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

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.
