    Anyone know how to fix a corrupt word file?

    Put it on my flash drive then reformated laptop put it back on laptop and its now corrupt showing jumbled squares and what not. Tried the repair and fix option but no joy.

    Anyone know how to solve this? File is very important as its a CV.

    Are you sure you're not trying to open it in an older version of Word like 2003 instead of 2007?

    i dunno tbh, I was able to open it on my PC? Intital document was done in Office 2007. think OP was using 2003

    With .DOCX files, these are newer then DOC so will only work on Office 07 unless you have a converter installed iirc
