    my computer has office 2000 and Windows Me as operating system (both are duch versions)

    when i save a word document, and i try to open it again via
    - windows explorer
    - file + select from the 4 recently opened files
    - (when i start word with the /a option)
    --> everything is fine
    but when i open it via
    - file - open
    --> layout is gone (ex. table (gridlines) is missing and all the cells are displayed to the left margin of the page with an alinia break (carriage return) at the end of each cell (line)

    --> some extra info is visible at the end of the file
    see below

    - uninstall and reinstall of office 2000 : no changes.

    who can help me out ?
    probably a registry entry i have to delete ?

    The problem lies between the keyboard and the chair.
    (Don't take offense, I love that saying!)

    :D

    Open Word.
    Hit File-Open.
    Note that you likely have "Recover text from any file" selected as the type. Change it to Word document and all will be well.

    :)
