there are about 10 JPEG images in that word document
So, are you saying that the document is corrupt, because i ve change the
document type from rtf to doc, to txt also, but it is showing as the same
size i.e. 512MB

If the document was created in Word, then the maximum size for the text part
is 32 MB. The images don't count against the 32 MB limit. But you did
specify that the text was 512 MB. I'm not sure how you got a document that
big if you created it in Word. Are you sure it isn't 512 KB?

When you say you've changed the type from rtf to doc and to txt, do you mean
you've changed the file extension, or that you've opened the document and
used 'Save As' to save as a different format?

If you changed the file extension, what was it to start with?

Default Not able to open 512MB word document

hi all..!

now i m able to open that same word document properly. lket me explain the
issue once again

i agree with suzanne that the word document can not contain more than 32mb
of text as per kb211489. but before inserting JPEG images in word document it
was showing 100+MB and after inserting JPEG images it was showing 512mb

i tried to open that document in word. but it it was giving me an message
that word is converting document filename and after conversion, it was
giving error message that i ve to perform open and repair. so, i tried that
also but didnt work

then i tried to open it with wordpad, but on the statusbar of the wordpad,
it was showing 1% complete..... 7% complete and again it was going in loop
saying 1% complete, so, i closed that also

then i tried to open the same document in notepad. it was saying that the
document is too big to open in notepad.

finnaly, i tried again in wordpad thinking that wordpad is not giving any
error message atleast. so, i tried to open it in wordpad. same issue occured.
it was going in loop. i left wordpad opened and after almost 15min, document
opened and opened properly with all the text and images

Imp: previously it was showing 512MB, but now it shows only 150KB

So, do you want to say that the document is corrupt..? i think it could be..!

Please reply

Thanks for previous suggestions..!

Regards,

Most likely it is corrupt; see
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/AppErrors/CorruptDoc.htm. But if Open and Repair
doesn't help, then your only recourse may be Recover Text from Any File.

Default Not able to open 512MB word document

I had the same problem and managed to open a corrupted file using Wordpad.
Same exact issue - a word file with scanned in jpegs mushroomed to 554 mgs
and couldn't be repaired or opened with anything - including about 10 file
repair software packages and WORd was useless. Thanks for giving me the only
solution that has worked to get my text.

Some bad WORD bug here.....
