How To check Winword file for validity

By eastman65 ·
I have a Winword file that cannot be printed. The printing job stacks in queue forever while task manager shows that Winword is working hard.
Being "saved as", that file increases in size, from 1 965 056 bytes to 1 969 152 bytes.
Checking for spyware doesn't show any malware being present.
Any help?

P.S. Microsoft Word 2002 (10.2627.3501) SP-1

Can it be displayed?

Is it from a newer version of Word than 2002? If so, do you have the compatibility pack installed?

You may also try (manually) emptying the spooler queue, then try again.

If the doc is possibly corrupted, Word has a repair tool, or you could try saving the file as RTF.

Maybe have a look at

Remedy was simple

I thought that the document was created with a newer version of Word than 2002. So I have installed Office 2007 and it helped. Word says that the file needs repairing and, after repairing, the document was printed all right.

Thanks for discussion!
