@$#% Word

I don't mean to sound like Ellen Feiss, but does anyone have suggestions on how to recover data from a corrupted Word file? It was working fine the other night. Now Word crashes anytime I try to open it. I've tried:

  • Copying file.
  • Opening new file and inserting the problem file.
  • ... inserting the problem file as a link.
  • and half a dozen other things that I don't want to take up your time with.

This is a 24 page document with diagrams and drawings on most pages. (1.8MB file size) Cleaning it up with a text editor is not feasible.


One lesson learned at least. Tools:Options:Save:Save options:Always create backup copy
