      This can be attributed to malfunctioning macros or damaged document files. It can also be that the format in which it has been sent is not supported by your Word.

      Try setting your email programs to Microsoft Rich Text format. Be sure that both programs are using Mime to convert the text.

      I have run into this problem. In my case the person receiving The document also had MS Word 6! Their system was trying to open the document with the older version. Try detaching the attachment, opening up Word 97 and opening the document from File – Open instead of just opening the file.
