    Close all programs, eject any USB devices and retry. If that doesn't work, I would try a restart.

    Right click the start button and choose "Run" from the context menu and in the run dialog box type
    winword.exe -safe
    hit enter or click OK
    Do you still get the error?

    maxmaxXX0,
    This problem may occur if you have a Word template in your Startup folder that contains an autoexec macro that opens a dialog box. Try to open the document directly in Word. If it useless your file is probably damaged. In this case i recommend you to download a special application.
    Here the link: https://www.fixtoolbox.com/wordfix.html
    You may export repaired contents to Microsoft Word or save as a text file.

    Good luck and Beat Regards,
    Stanley Webb
