Can't open Word document - urgent help needed

  flick 21:51 23 Nov 2004

My son has just called me to say that he can't open a Word document he's been using for an essay - due in tomorrow!

The error message is 'Document name or path not valid'

This is one of three Word files he can't access, all other Word docs are fine.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Immediate problem resolved. He copied the folder and the 3 dodgy files renamed themselves, so now he can open them and finish his essay.

the same thing happened me with office 2000 and I tried it with office xp and office 2003, it works. Do not know why.

I assume you are trying to open them in word using the mru list. It may be that the mru list is corrupt or they have been moved. If this is the case see if the files still exist on your hd also check the bin,
