Another thing you can try

Save it as rtf - That removes a lot of codes

Then reopen

Barbara

Documentum/Word strikes again...

A colleague has a 300 page document with about 7 hours of edits in it
that is refusing to open.

I have a copy and yep, it's corrupt all right.

The only luck I've had is opening it in WordPad, but that just yields
text and a lot of odd characters. I can't see if the edits are there or
not. Talking to the editor, it sounds like most of the revisions she
made were changes to styles, so it's difficult to say whether the text
file that I've been able to open actually contains the edits or not .

I'm in the midst of downloading Open Office. I've seen that suggested in
the past. Has anyone else got a suggestion?

Thanks in advance,
