Troubleshooting Word filesYou should try these things before calling for professional IT support help for data recovery.
Try another Word document.
The first thing is try to access another word file, if you are able to open that file then there is problem with only this file not the application. In case you cannot open it, it is the whole word application at fault, not an issue with your file.
Open the document in another instance.
Sometimes simply trying to open the file at other computer might work. You can send your file to your colleague and ask him opening the file from his computer. it will be better if your friend has similar or latest version of Microsoft office as trying to open it in earlier version might simply not work due to compatibility issues.
Open the document in another office application.
Another way of troubleshooting your document can be to try opening document in another office application. For example there are many other applications that can read word file. You may try Good Docs and Libre office that are among free applications available for such purpose.
Save the file in a different format.You may also try saving the file in different format as it might work as well. Click on save as button in main menu that will prompt for the location and format type to save the file. You should save as by selecting “Rich Text Format”. Once saved in rtf format, you should try to open the document using .rtf rather than .doc. You can do it by right clicking the document, from options click on open with and select the open using .rft rather .doc. it some cases it will clear the formatting word may add to the file due to which corruption might occur. If you are able to open the file repeat all steps and no save it as .doc file and open it again.
See if Word can recover the data. Another way of recovering you file can be try opening it in the word, if you can open the word, navigate to open word, browse to select the file type in the bottom right corner and then select recover text from any file with this sign (*). By using this method it will try recovering and rebuilding the file into something understandable.
