.docx cannot be opened because there are problems with the content


Yesterday while I was working on my Word 2007 document, it was closed
unexpectedly. When I tried to reopen the file I've got an error message as
follows:
"The Office Open XML file Uniqe2.docx cannot be opened because there are
problems with the content."
It has a detail as follows:
"Unidentified error
Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 195269"
The file is so crucial and it contains my recent studies. I need your
help. Please help me.

I'm having an emergency regarding a Word file I have spent dozens of hours.
I am using Word 2007 Ultimate.

I am getting this error: "**.docx cannot be opened because there are
problems with contents" when I attempt to open a very simple Word document.
My computer crashed and then when I tried to reopen the Word file I started
getting this error. I am not a programmer or anything and really need to use
this file today.

What simple process can I do to get the text of the file out? Google
searches gave me no help whatsoever.

I must say I NEVER had any of these problems with any of the earlier
versions of Office. This XML format is a nightmare for regular users like
me.

Sincerely,
Lee Vasche




The XML file a.xml cannot be opened because there are problems with the
content/ I have a XML file, open it with Word, it works fine. I uploaded it
to CLOB, download it and reopen it.. it gave me this error. Any idea? Thanx
alot




Not knowing what version of Word (2007?... earlier version with converters?)
or which version of Windows (XP, Vista?) it's hard to offer specifics, but
have you tried the Open & Repair option?

I am receiving an error when trying to reopen a document. The error is

I've had Office 2007 for months now without problems, but just recently have
not been able to open Zip folders from a government web site. When I try to
open the Zip folder it won't open and displays the message "The Office Open
XML file [X] cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents" .
When I click on "Details" it state that Microsoft Office cannot open the file
because some parts are missing or invalid or corrupt.

But these are files I opened fine previously, and I am now getting this
message for every zip file I try to open from this web site
(www.cms.hhs.gov). I have Windows Vista.

Any suggestions to solve this would be much appreciated.




I have saved my work on June 1, now i cant open it. I dont know what is the
problem. The error message said " The file cannot be opened because there are
problem with the contents. Details: the file is corrupt and cannot be
opened." I really need the information inside the file. Anyone can help?
Please it is very urgent and important.




Dear Group,

My word (professional plus 2010) crashed while I was putting the
finishing touches on my Master's thesis (!!) and when I tried to
reopen the file I got the following error:

"the file Thesis.docx cannot be opened because there are problems with
the contents.
Details: The XML data is invalid according to the schema. Location:
part: /word/document.xml, Line 2, Column:0"
then
"the file Thesis.docx cannot be opened because there are problems with
the contents.
Details: The name in the end tag of the element must match the element
type in start tag.
Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line 2, Column: 9242388"

I renamed it to a zip file, extracted document.xml, and tried to
repair the file but I cannot tell which tag is left open. Can anyone
please help me?!

Here is a link to the doc.xml file: https://rapidshare.com/files/2988816111/document.xml

I am a little panicked as I am supposed to turn in my thesis soon.
Eeek!

Thank you so much in advance,

Sarah




I have had a problem for quite some time. Initially the problem was that
when I created a docx file from my existing templates and tried to open the
docx file, I would get a notification that teh file was in use by another
user. I could open as a Read Only or cancel. Either choice would then open
the docx file not as a Read Only file. In all cases, the file was not being
used by another user. This was annoying, but the file would open. After
installing KB956358, docx files created from these templates would not open.
I would get an error that states The Office Open XML File documenet_name.docx
cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents. If I moved
the template file that the docx was created from out of its folder so it is
no longer in either the user templates or workgroup templates, the docx file
will open. If I then make a change to teh docx file and save it, I can then
move the template file to its proper location and open the docx file with no
problem.

If I save files as doc files, I do not have a problem, however Word will not
keep the default save as format as doc.

All my template files are dot files. I am running Windows XP Pro x64.




I get following message when trying to open docx file created on work PC
(same version of Word) on my home PC:

The Office Open XML file filename.docx cannot be opened because there are
problems with the contents.

When I look at the details:

Unspecified error. Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 679532

Any suggestions?

I am having trouble opening files after saving them. I keep getting the
message "cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents.
Details says "Unspecified error" followed with the location in the
"document.xml" file.




I want to export emails from Outlook to Word, there's never been an easy
waythat does involve cut and paste and the potential loss of sender, date &
subject. With the advent of XPS I thought I'd found a better way.

I print a message in Outlook to an XPS file (xxxxxx.xps), I can open it in
IE8 to view a perfect copy, when I open it in Word. I get this error:-

"The file xxxxxx cannot be opened because there are problems with the
contents"

Details - "Microsoft Office cannot open the file because some parts are
missing or invalid"

So I print a document from Word (its a docx) to another XPS file,
yyyyyy.xps. I get the exact same error when I try to open it with Word, it
opens OK in with IE8.

Is there a problem relating to reading XPS files into Word, if so is there a
work around or fix, if not where do I report the problem.

I have seen reference to an XPS Essentials Pack, given its release date,
11/4/2008, I assume its included in a more recent Service Pack. It's not
listed as available by MS Update, nor does it seem to have been previously
installed. I have aslso seen reference to needing to have XML Version 6.0 -
how do I find out what version of it is installed?




I have created a form in Word 2007 (Office Service Pack 1) for my Company.
Some of the users have already worked on the files, but after a day they
cannot open the document again. They get the next error. (It is not all the
users that get the message) and all of them save it in Word 2007 format.

Hello,

Through a VB app. developed by Visual Studio 2005 I am opening a Word
document template, pupulate it from VB Userform data and print it. So far no
problem but after printing I save the document and try to close the document.
While it seems document is closed but Word empty window stays open.

Now when I go to the directory I have saved the document and try to open the
document it can not open it and it gives me the following dialog error.

The Office Open.XML file (Paarsa)(20090519010537).doc cannot be opened
because there are problems with the contents. Clicking on the Details
shows the following:
Details
Unspecified error
Location: Part:/word/header1.xml, Line: 2, Column: 3263

How can I find out what is wrong with my document?

Strang is that I do this for multiple Word Template some works with no
problem and some does not... I tend to beleive there is something wrong
inside of my Word Template X.dot that does not work. How can I find this
problem?

I have one user that when she opens a Word doc - Office 97-2003 format using
Word 2007 sp1 and Outlook 2007 sp1 she gets a message "The Office Open XML
File - filename cannot be opened because there are problems with the
contents".

We try saving the document to hard drive and opening to the desktop and
still get the same error. I tried the Open and Repair feature but that
doesn't work. I scanned the computer for spyware using Malwarebytes and
removed quite a bit of spyware but I still can't open this document. Is
there a problem with XML on the pc? Any suggestions would be helpful.




Because OneNote 2007 does not save an entire notebook in .docx format, I
saved it in xps format, hoping that Word could open the document. It could
not. The error message was: "...cannot be opened because there are problems
with the content." Then I used an empty Word document, save it in xps and
tried to open it. I got the same message. How can I get an entire notebook
into Word or save the notebook in word format? The error message there is
that saving in docx is not supported by OneNote.
Thanks,

User has Word 2007 (12.0.6504.5000) SP2 MSO (12.0.6425.1000). He opens a
letterhead template with fields originally created in Word 2000 or 2002.
Compatibility Mode appears in the Title Bar. He adds his data, saves and
closes this new .docx file. When he tries to reopen this newly created file,
it gives him the error, "The file {filename} cannot be opened because there
are problems with the contents." Nothing will open this file include Recover
Text from Any File.

I have Word 2007 (12.0.4518.1014) MSO (12.0.6020.5000) which looks like a
more original version that the user has, yet I can use these same templates
and open the resulting files with no problem.

I tried renaming his normal.dot and making his Workgroup Templates location
a Trusted Location and neither made any difference. Can anyone shed any
light on this? This area has appx. 200 templates! TIA...
