I have an odd situation, one of the emloyees in my office has WORD 2010 while everyone else has WORD 2003, this employee saves his documents in the word 2003 ".doc" format from word 2010.
Everything was working fine until recently all the employees have been getting a "Word was unable to read this document. It may be corrupt" when trying to open files saved from word 2010 in to the word 2003 format.
I also have word 2010 on my PC and I can open those specific documents without any issues, in order to temporarily fix the issue I have to open it and save it back in to the word 2003 format.
I read online that there's a hotfix for this issue, I've installed it but yet I'm still getting these messages. That employe with word 2010 also has some VBA code that automates some things in the document; but when I open VB in word, there seems to be no code listed in the document.
I know the obvious solution would be to update word, but my secretaries have a tough time with the new interface and it would create a serious slow down in our report output.
