Word 7 hangs

Here's the situation:
On Wednesday I worked on my Word file using Windows NT. Everything worked fine. The doc is under 200 pages and 2 MB. My computer is left on 24 hours. When I tried to open the file on Thursday, the file would open, then the system would freeze. No error message or anything. I have plenty of memory, space, etc.

It seems to get to some point in the open process and then hang - like about 1.5 seconds into the open operation.

Here's what I've tried:
opening the file on someone else's machine -- it did the same thing.
Opening other documents. As long as I open them first, Word acts normally. It's only when I open this file that the system hangs.
Looking in Techwr-l archives. No luck.
Going to Microsoft tech support site. No luck.

Any ideas? TIA
