    In your case if instruction from Microsoft Corp. which is situated below can't assist you, apply following resources to get more tips concerning word data restoration

    LINKS Removed.
    DOCX Open File Tool


    If AutoRecover is turned on, try closing Word and reopening it. An AutoRecover task pane should appear on the left.

    Otherwise ...

    • In Word 2007: Click the Microsoft Office Button | Open | select the Word document |
    • in the lower-right corner of the Open pane, click Open and Repair
    • In Word 2003: Pull down | File menu | select the Word document
    • in the lower-right corner of the Open pane, click Open and Repair
