Thumbs up

- Several "text" recovery programs.
- I have tried using word to repair and open the documents
- I have tried opening the documents in several other text browsers - ie. Notepad, wordpad etc
- I have tried using winzip, winrar and 7zip to retreive text
- I have tried changing options in word to attempt to open the document as a draft.
- I have tried to use word to "insert text" from the document
- I've applied software which restores corrupted word docs https://www.repairtoolbox.com/wordrepair.html Word Repair Toolbox

Default Need help in opening a corrupted word file.

For the new XML file formats (*.docx et cetera), you can change the filename
extension to *.zip; after you have opened the file in a zip program (for
example the one built into Windows), try getting content out of document.xml
which sometimes works. If it isn't possible to open the zip file either,
then the document is likely corrupt beyond rescue, though.
