I get the following message when trying to access a specific WORD document:

The document name or path is not valid. Try these suggestions:
* Check the file permissions for the document or drive.
* Use the File Open dialog box to locate the document
(C:\Documents and Settings\.....\temp.doc)

I looked in "Help" under "permissions", and it says that XP needs special permissions (for security reasons)... but this is the first time I am getting this message. All my other documents are accessible.

By the way, if I click the "open file" dialog, I get the same message.

I CAN open the document through Word-pad and Note-pad, but much of the text is garbled and incomprehensible.

Can you open any Word document? Sounds like that specific document may be damaged. Can you attempt to transfer it to, say, floppy, and see if it will open on another computer?

If you'd like, you can email it to me if you don't have another computer available.
