Word file limitation

I am trying to open a file under .doc or .txt format that is 34.4Mb. I found out MS Word has a file limitation of 32Mb which is causing this file to truncate. Is there a text editor which will open a file of this size or larger?

If the file contains only text then the limit is 32 MG. However this does not include
graphics that are linked or embedded.
A 500 page document (no graphics)is less than 2 MB.

I would make a copy of the file with a different name, then open itup.
Go to Tools>Options Save and uncheck Allow Fast Saves. Cut and paste material to another doc. Save and then do it again.

I understand the size issue. That was not the question.

Please don't respond if you don't read the query. I am looking for a text editor that opens files over 32Mb.

A good text editor is VEDIT. It is very versatile and great for any file manipulation. It also handles up to 2 Gig files. They have a trial version. However, there may be limitations to its use in the trial version mode. Good luck.
