    Is this a joke?
    All i get is an edugeek webpage, with some error regarding logging into vbulletin as though the site has timed out on you. no corruption.
    I mean the page i get up is a word document and the contents is html source from the edugeek website or something made to look like it, saying javascript is required.
    I think you may have had problems with the upload. Try again, making sure you have javascript enabled, and no ad blockers or add-ons disabled.

    Seems to have uploaded fine actually but not having much joy getting anything out of it... Would think that's you right clicking and saving an edugeek error page? Definitely a corrupt doc for me. All I get text wise out of it at the moment is

    Normal
    Default Paragraph Font
    Table Normal
    No List
    Table Grid
    Unknown
    Times New Roman
    Symbol
    Arial
    Cambria
    Palatino Linotype
    IT Support
    Foxy Lady
    Root Entry
    Data
    1Table
    WordDocument
    SummaryInformation
    DocumentSummaryInformation
    CompObj
    Guessing this is from a personal laptop then?

    The file headers are missing so it wont ever be openable properly - the program wont know what bit of data is where - has she got a copy at home or will it be quicker to redo it.

    Sorry for being the bearer of bad news.

    My bad. It was freedownloadmanager doing the download and it doesn't have my edugeek login details thus the error. strangely it created a word document and populated it with the erroring webpage. I didn't actually see the error, and continued in the forum as normal. odd.

    so if it was done at home, you still have an original somewhere???

    Open up word --> Tools --> Options --> File Locations

    That should show you where it has been configured to do auto saves

    Should be a copy of it there

    Also if its still corrupt , you can try and make a copy of it and rename it to either htm or html file ext and open and any recoverable info should be in there

    How can I recover a corrupt document or template - and why did it become corrupt?

    HTH somewhat
