Unhappy Strange print layout view and printing problem

Hi, I've got a large word document (2007) containing over 100 pages. However, in print layout view (the one I normally do editing in), you cannot scroll past p41. As you scroll into p42, word stops refreshing and updating the screen and moves you back into p41. I've uploaded the file so that you can see what I mean for yourself: study.docx
(feasibility study.docx)

And also a linked excel file to go with it (in the same directory. I've got references in the word document if that makes any difference):

Oddly enough, I can see the whole file in outline or draft view, though I am unable see any pictures or charts. On print layout view, clicking any link in the document map that takes you past page 41 will do nothing, and pressing ctrl+G to jump to a page will result in word telling you that it "cannot determine the destination". Also, trying to print the document results in word showing a progress bar in the status bar printing p1, p2 etc until p41, then it just aborts silently. Oddly enough saving it as a 2003 .doc file resolves the problem, but messes up the formatting.

I really hope you guys can help.

Thanks for your support.

After experimenting some more I found it to be a problem with the equation editor in word - I think it was that fact I had multi-line equations and after some combinations of undo/redo and deleting line breaks, ended up with two equations on the same line (it usually merges two adjacent equations) - i think that really messed word up, though to be honest Word should never have let it happen in the first place.

But anyway, I've replaced the feasibility study.docx file with one containing the culprit equations.

See what you think.
