That might cause the error. Try to open it in Word and save as an older version.

He only has an old computer and does not have word. Its a win 98 32 mb ram. Do you think i could download a free word processor for him, install it and thenrun it and try to open the file that he had with wordpad. Also will it be in the same language. I tried to open up the wordpaad document into notepad and it just came up wth a load of bits and bobs, mixed into the document.

Powerful MS Word compatible office suite, and completely free. click here

Pentium-compatible PC • Microsoft Windows 98, NT, ME, 2000 and XP1 • 64 MBytes RAM recommended • 250 MBytes hard disk space • mininum display 800x600, 256 colours

Might be a bit slow on 32 Mbytes RAM, but I reckon it will still run. OK for converting stuff to use in Wordpad.
