You can't post an attachment to a newsgroup.

Are you trying to open .docx files on a computer with Word 2003 or earlier?
They gave out a free "compatibility pack" back in 2006 when the new format was introduced. It enabled you to open .docx files in earlier versions, though
you couldn't save in the new format. Maybe you can still find it at the web site.

Hi, this problem often happens
try the following: Download Remo Recover software and install it on your Windows or Mac system. http://www.docx.repair/

Launch the software and select Recover Files option from the main screen.

In the next screen select Recover Deleted Files or Recover Lost Files option based on your requirement. Choose the drive from which your files need to be recovered.

Next, choose the Select File Type option to search for only docx files. The scanning process starts now. Once it is completed, preview the recovered files using Preview option and save them at a location of your choice.
