Try these suggestions.
* Check the file permissions for the document or drive.
* Make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space.
* Open the file with the Text Recovery converter. (path )

This error message can appear for several reasons.
The document may be corrupt or damaged. Use either the Recover Text converter or the Open and Repair feature. Both are available from the Open dialog.
NOTE: If you have opened a file that is attached to an e-mail, it is recommended that you save the file to a local hard disk first before attempting to recover or repair the file.
The Open and Repair feature is available from the Open dialog box. To open and attempt a repair, click the Microsoft Office Button, click Open, and then navigate to the damaged file and click it once. Instead of clicking the Open button at the bottom right of the dialog to open the file, click the down arrow to the right of the button and select Open and Repair from the menu. If the file can be recovered, it will open and display in the document work area.
The Recover Text converter is available from the Open dialog box and appears in the Files of type drop down list. It appears in the drop down list as: Recover Text from Any Fi
