Cannot open word documents

  brewersfan 09:37 13 Sep 2003


My sister sent me a cd of 13 word documents with Office 2000), and I can only open a few of them (with Office 2000). On the others, I get the message -

This file could not be found.
Try one of more of the following:
* Check the spelling of the name of the document
* Try a different file name

Has anyone else come across this, and is there to access the files? I tried looking for an online version of Norton Utilities (or similar), but with no success.

Check the size of the doc's you can't open, possible she only copied over the shortcuts

the files are a few MB in size, so I'm pretty sure she copied them all over.

Files are most likely corrupt. Easist thing would be to get her to resend the other files.
