My dissertation is due to be handed in in a few hours and the whole file has become corrupt.

I have tried to look at the xml file but I cannot spot any errors as I have a fairly limited knowledge of xml.

 

 

 

I need a hero!   

 

 

 

Here is a link to the file!

I have no desire to join dropbox.  Is it possible to convert the file into a text-file?  In the old days, we used to say ANSI text-file, nothing but words and punctuation.

here is the xml code from the Document if that helps!   I can always add it back into the zip folder and test it if corrections are made!

Also, did you come across this Microsoft Support article yet?

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2528942

Do you indeed use Math functions in that document?

Thanks,   I tried the fix with no luck.  There shouldn't be anything Math related in this document either.

The XML code you posted is from the [Content_Types].xml document, and not the document.xml file, which contains the following:
Belfast Metropolitan College, Department of Fashion and Textiles.Validated by Manchester Metropolitan University.Department of Cutting Designs and Technology.An investigation of the military fashion trend, regarding its origins, popularity and prevalence.By Lydia CourtneyCOU12045182 Honours project submitted to Manchester Metropolitan University as part of a degree of Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Fashion Management.7th May 2015.352425topAn analysis of the military fashion trend DissertationFashion ManagementLydia Courtney (COU12045182)5/7/15Fashion Management00An analysis of the military fashion trend DissertationFashion ManagementLydia Courtney (COU12045182)5/7/15Fashion Management
However, it doesn't looks like there's anything in it that is XML related. Let me try something.

Edit: I think I got it.

Here's the XML file that have an error. I just have to see what it's missing. So far it looks like it's missing a </v:textbox> tag.

My XML is a bit rusty, and the fact that there's like 14,000+ lines in that XML document doesn't help. It'll take me a few.

Alright, so the XML is good, however, it says that the document can't be opened since there's missing element. I'll download a fresh copy of your .docx file and swap the document.xml.

Edit: Scratch that, I got it. It opened on my system.
