Problem opening the ms word 2010 file format - .doc

P: 1
So, the problem with opening the file (word)..or the problem with the hands (this option is also not excluded ).
A message appears when you open it:
"error trying to open file.
Try the following :
- check the permission to access the document
- check if there is enough memory and disk space
- open the file with the backup Converter»
All possible actions (at the level of knowledge of the average user's computer) were taken - the result is zero. Please help...very important file!!!!
PS I do not know whether in the right section put....another may be a topic already was, if anything, send it where you want (on, respectively ).

Welcome to Bytes! This seems like an appropriate forum to ask your question.

First: make a copy of the original file you are trying to open. Just in case you corrupt it (or corrupt it more) by trying to open it.

What version of Word are you using to open the file?

Are you sure that it is a 2010 version of the file. If it is a very old version of Word, the newest versions of Word may not open it. You may have to search for a Word converter (you may have to purchase one).

You may try changing the extension to .docx, just to see if it can be opened with the latest version of Word.

In a worst case scenario, your file is corrupted and lost. Do you have any paper copies of this file?

Not a lot of good news in this response, but just facinf facts.
