Hello,

 

        I've moved your question to the Business Applications forum since those for any of the various office suites fall under that category.

 

        Is your issue occurring only for a specific single file, or a few files, or are you getting it no matter what Word document you try to open?

Without more information I can only make a guess. It sounds as though rather than upgrading you installed a second instance of Office on your system, created a document in Word 2016, and you're trying to open it with the earlier version of Word.
