    Large file with TOC (Word 2000 SR1)

    I have a large manual, close to 1000 pages with a table of contents. I have a copy on my harddrive and one on the network. I was able to open both of them about 2 months ago. I recently went in to make changes but found I could not open either file. Word just hung and I had to restart. I closed everything and tried to open but I still cannot open the manual. Any suggestions? Anyway to recover the text. I am not worried about the table of contents but I do not want to have to scan this manual. thanks.

    How large is your document? - file size, not number of pages

    So far as I know, Word can't handle anything over 32Mb.

    You may want to take a look at the following:

    I tried everything and the only thing that worked was "recover text from any file".

    Thank you.
