And the version of Word is? Service Pack is? First of all are you opening
the file via windows explorer/my computer or going into Word and doing file
Where is the document located, is it a network drive, local drive like C,
D, or is it on a floppy disk, CD? What is the path to the file? Once you
have the path have you tried going into my computer, or windows explorer and
seeing if the file exists? Have you tried, going to search, or files and
folders and doing a search on say *.doc on all locations which will show all
word documents on drives you selected? Does the Word file appear??
If you can import to Framemaker then the file must be on the machine, so how
about trying to open the file using a plain text editor like wordpad, saving
the text as txt format then creating a new document. You would of course
have to redo the formatting. Does Framemaker have an option to save as a
word file, RTF or text file, maybe you could try saving to another file, I
haven't ever used Framemaker so cannot help here.
If you have version Word 2000 XP, then go to the help menu, try detect and
repair, this might try and repair any corrupted word files. Also go to
tools, options, file locations and check the path to autorecovery for files.
Is the word file perhaps in the folder for auto recovery or maybe a back up
Also remember that the later versions of Word ie Word 97, 2000, XP will open
word files in any version of word but if you are using an ancient copy of
word 95 it will have trouble trying to open later versions.
Hope some of this helps,
