Hello John @John-project ,
No error message!
I saved the file normally two days ago and now if I try to open it nothing appears. Only the MS project tool remain open.
I can create and open different project files saved and reopen them
Likely the issue is in the specified file. There is a way to repair it?
thanks a lot for your prompt answer

You say you saved it "normally" but didn't say where (i.e. locally or to a remote server). Saving remotely can result in corruption if there is any glitch on the network during the save process.
If you are able to create, save and re-open a new file, it appears Project is working okay so as you suspect, the problem is with your file itself. I suggest you try methods 1 and 3 in the following Wiki article:
If the above methods do not help, you could search the internet for third party applications that claim to recover damaged Project files. I know some do exist but I have no personal experience about how well they work.
As an alternate, You'll have to search for the last saved backup that will open and go from there. If you have no such backup, I'm afraid the your only option is to start over. Note, if you happened to send your file to someone, perhaps you can retrieve that as a "backup".

I just have again the issue on a different project. On Yesterday, I introduced change in my previous file ( March 2021) and now I can not open it. I noticed that if I open the file with Project 2013 viewer appear the following message:
MPPFile.Reprocess MPPFile.process: switch (format) (type=14):
Number was less than the array's lower bound in the first dimension.
Parameter name: srcindex
at Housatonic.HPV7.Mpp.MPPFile.Reprocess ()
at Housatonic.HPV_Solo.MainSolo.FileOpen (string fileName, String password)
Thanks in advance

I finally solved:
after several attempts, I tried to open the corrupt file with a different PC and with a different Ms project (Project on line). I managed to open it, save it with a different name and then reopen it and edit it on my PC with my 2016 project.
Then, I can say:
They are the Mysteries of Microsoft !!!!!!!!
