Get error when try open MS-word.docx document
Hello Experts,

I am cannot open my MS-word.docx document.
The error it get is White space expected:Part:/word/docment, XML,Line,2 Column:642733.

I've tried everything I can think of! Including:
Saving it as a .zip file. Which it won't
Saving it as .txt: Which It will- But no help.
Looking at it in word pad: Still no help.

How can I find:,Line,2 Column:642733. and correct it? or at least save what Ive written to that point.
I have no idea what happened to cause this other than the flash drive didn't update on my last save...

Please please Help.. hours of work were invested....

Thank you!

I can only help you with the finding part, I cannot help with the fixing part, because I don't know how to fix this.

Using a program like 7-ZIP, use it to open the .docx file and you will see all the files contained within. You will find a /word/document.xml contained within.

That is where the document.xml is located. Don't know how to fix it though.

I am more than sure that your file is corrupted.
When a Word document file is corrupted, then you can try several methods to recover it:
1. First of all, you can try the recovery function integrated with Microsoft Word, as follows:
1) On the File menu, click Open.
2) In the Look in list, click the drive, folder, or Internet location that contains the file that you want to open.
3) In the folder list, locate and open the folder that contains the file.
4) Select the file that you want to recover.
5) Click the arrow next to the Open button, and then click Open and Repair.
The "Recover Text from Any File" converter has limitations. For example, document formatting is lost. Additionally, graphics, fields, drawing objects, and any other items that are not text are lost. However, field text, headers, footers, footnotes, and endnotes are retained as simple text.
1. In Word 2007, click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open.
In Word 2010, click the File Menu, and then click Open.
3. In the Files of type box, click Recover Text from Any File(*.*).
4. Click the document from which you want to recover the text.
5. Click Open.
After the document is recovered by using the "Recover Text from Any File" converter, there is some binary data text that is not converted. This text is primarily at the start and end of the document. You must delete this binary data text before you save the file as a Word document.
In that case, if that doesn't help, then it remains only to try to recover the file by using Word Recovery Toolbox. You can find more information at the link. http://www.oemailrecovery.com/word_recovery.html
