    How to fix doc ? (XP no SR or SP at present)

    Hi,

    My important Word Doc seems to be corrupted.
    When I take an old version (which is Ok) and do what I need to do, which is Select All -> Update Field (F9) - it crashes again!

    What can I do?!

    Ta,

    m.q.

    Open the doc.

    Select everythingEXCEPT the last paragraph mark.

    Paste it into a new document.

    Corruption is usually in the last paragraph mark, so copying witout it, tends to fix corruption.

    Have a look at this page for ways to ecover corrupt documents.
