Last week some of my word documents were corrupted. Those documents were saved with .docx extension. I heard about a manual repair function of MS Word, a forceful technique to open corrupt word documents. I tried it and then I could open my word documents without any error.
How to repair a corrupt word document by using Open and Repair?
1. Open MS Word program.
2. Click on File tab > Open (in MS Word 2010).
Or click on Office button and click on Open (in MS Word 2007 and earlier).
3. The Open window will appear. Now select the corrupt word document from your system directory.
4. Click on the arrow shown on the Open button. Select Open and Repair from the list.
5. Within a few seconds the selected word file will be repaired and opened in MS Word program.
Hope this information would be helpful for MS Word users.
