Whenever I try to open a docx file created from a windows box the file opens but most of the content is unreadable.
This issue has happened with several documents, not just one.

Any advice you could provide or things to try would be greatly appreciated.

·         Close Microsoft Word, then click StartRun, type winword /a and press Enter. Try to open the document using this copy of Word.

·         Try to insert the damaged document into a new document. Create a new document, then click on InsertFile, select the damaged document and click Insert.

·         Try opening the file using WordPad then re-saving it to a new file, or copyimg the contents and pasting them into a new Word document.

Or try using a Microsoft Word document recovery tool such as Word Fix Toolbox
