Not enough memory to open a 31KB document

  Trikie 23:41 14 Jan 2007

I saved an e-mailed document and it opens OK with Open Office. Format is .doc and when I try to open it with Works WP I get the message "There is not enough memory to open file***********.doc. Close your document, close other programs and then try again."

I have no other programs open and its a 31KB document.

I'm using XP with SP2,512MB memory.

No problem opening much larger files even with other programs running. Curious to know what's happened to this one file.

It could be a corrupted file or you may require the free Word viewer to read it:

Thanks. As its a one-off I'll assume its a corrupted file
