How to fix problem when I attempt to open a Word document and get an error message?

Hey guys !



When I attempt to open a word document, I get a error message :



Word failed reading from this file. Please restore the network connection or replace floppy disk and retry.



I'm left with 2 options - retry and cancel.



I see my text in teh background, however I can't access it because the popup box is in the way.



I'm running it off a local hard drive.



Does anyone know how I can repair this ? It's a very important document.



Thanks.

1.Open the Office applications that you were using.

2.Click the File tab.

3.Click Recent.

4.Click Recover Unsaved Documents if you are in Word.

Your saved drafts folder will open in a new window. Select the file and then click Open.

In the business bar at the top of the file, click Save As to save your file to your computer.

You made a backup? If yes, then:

Start MSWord.

Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open.

Locate the folder in which you last saved the missing file.

In the Files of type list, click All Files. The backup file usually has the name "Backup of" followed by the name of the missing file.

Click the backup file, and then click Open.
