Is this a joke?

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

Guessing this is from a personal laptop then?

Yeah, she did the work ah home and got corrupt when copied to memory stick.

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???

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?
