    Re: Error when try to upload Word Document

    Are you downloading or uploading?

    Generally uploading refers to transferring from your disk to the website, download to a transfer from the web to your disk.

    If you are downloading, try saving the file to your disk, then opening.
    Regards

    What happens if you first save the file to you disk, then try to open it?

    Re: Error when try to upload Word Document

    There is an expression: "stuff happens" (the word usually isn't "stuff") ! Files can get corrupt or damaged anywhere along the way. That message looks like it could be a permissions or password problem, but with Word, it's hard to tell. If YOU uploaded the file originally, why don't you open THAT copy?

    Continuing John's question, EXACTLY how did you download the file? Did you right-click on it at the web page and select SAVE AS? If you did, be sure you check all the settings in that window to make sure something isn't selected wrongly in there. What happens if you try to open it without downloading, i.e. just click it and see what your browser does with it?

    Re: Error when try to upload Word Document

    Not much with words today are you?

    Going back a little further in time, are you sure you UPLOADED the file to the web location as a BINARY file, not ASCII ?

    Otherwise I'm fresh out of ideas. You didn't answer the question about using the original file rather than the downloaded copy...

    Re: Error when try to upload Word Document

    Have you tried re-uploading in case the file became corrupted in the upload process?

    Can you tell if the size of the file on the server is the same as the size of your original copy?
    Regards
    John

    Is this file on a public server? If so, please post a link to the file or page where the file is accessible if you want others to be able to assess the situation without so much guesswork.
