Hi all, I just tried opening a .doc file I created using 'OpenOffice', but I'm getting this error: "Read-Error. This is not a WinWord97 file." Since I'm on a Mac I tried using NeoOffice and Bean, but I get the same error. The only reason I can think of is that this .doc is in a Truecrypt container and I may have left it open accidentally the last time I opened it. I'm not 100% sure on this. The file is 6mb so it has a lot of work I've put into it. The word count would be over 8,000 words. What else can I try? Thanks I really need help!
