I Messed up my WORD document?

  neil_raj 22:59 22 Nov 2006

I created the letter in WORD, saved it in WORD, but me hearties, the blasted thing won't open in WORD.

I think I created it in the new Office Beta version, office 11 if my memory serves me right?

Instead of a WORD icon the letter displays the standard "W" but AS A DOCX FILE.

What can I do, the damn thing opens in gob-aldi-gook script.

Cheers me dears..... Regards, Neil.

Hi, can you change the documents prefix i.e. *name*.doc - then maybe Word will read it correctly.

Tried that Technotiger - no joy!

Thanks anyway!

Have you tried a search for other (saved) versions of the file?

If you use Word Help you can read up about Troubleshoot Saving Documents and About File Properties (also try the AutoRecover information).
