What file extension is on the file?

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to file opening problem

If it's not .DOC Word will not be able to open it and if you have the latest version of Word and this was created on a much earlier version of Word it may not be compatible with the new Word Format. Or if things are the other way around if this document was created on the newest Word Format and you have a earlier Word Version that could be the problem.

If it is a .DOC document and your version of Word can not open it try downloading and installing Open Office and if you have a .DOC file extension that should open it without a problem.

if you sure that was a word document

probably you had a wrong file association config in your machine.

if you really sure that was a word document - then you can just right click it -> choose open with -> select ms word.
