Some documents (that I created on the same computer with the same version of Word) won't open correctly anymore...all they show is the one graphic that I had...all the text, text boxes and other formatting are completely gone. BUT, if I open the same file using OpenOffice...it works fine. :thumbsup:

I have other similar files that work without any trouble in Word...but then I have a bunch that have this problem...HELP!!

ThanX in advance!

Thank heaven for OO.o!
Have you checked the problem files' extension?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
