Have you tried opening the file as it is?
Have you tried opening the file from within word?
Have you tried inserting it into another office application? i.e import word doc into excel

Hope these will help!

Open it on notepad or wordpad? You will lose the formatting.

Hi

Tried but doesnt still work.

and

thanks for the other post

Opens in Notepad but not all is there.

Not all = not the formatting or half the writting missing?

Check for any tmp files. Once deleted something by mistake and it was all there in a tmp file :p

Probably the file is corrupted and some of the text will be lost anyway. The best you can hope for really is notepad and extracting the text manually.

Hi

Well I tried to use the Doc Fixing software on the net....However I am able to get the text back but not in the correct formatting i.e. the tables etc has anyone any idea how I could get that back?

Thanks

I spose you could try installing open office, opening from that perhaps?

Was the file created with Word 2007?

Hi

Yes it was made in MS 2007 but saved in the format when u can use on other MS Word versions.

If you can open the file, but the contents are garbled, try using the Show/Hide
button to reveal formatting. Then, starting from the beginning of the document,
highlight all of the text except any extra paragraph markers at the bottom of
the document. Copy the text and paste it into a new document. If that doesn't
work, you may be able to copy and paste other segments to rebuild the file


I found this tip as I have recovered it but the problem is that I can see the
formatting:

> [ CCbjbj (,;-----AAA8yDA3 IIIIIk!k!k!f3h3h3h3h3h3h358Ph3-8 @
!^88h3--II}3$$$8X-I-If3$8f3$$j1h2I^Aj1R3303188 28-2k!0!$!!k!k!k!h3h3#^k!k!k!388888k!k!k!k!k!k!k!k!k!
:




Can I get this translated so I can reveal its original formatting

Thanks
