Hello Everyone, I read the conversation between Chris and Doug, and it gave me a ray of hope. I finished writing my first book and recently decided to do the final editing. However, my PC crashed and when I recovered the document it couldn't open. The document is about 900kb in size. The error message keep saying word was unable to read(open) the document. I was carried away with editing that I forgot to back up along. My fault I would say. Wish I never made that mistake.<br />Please if there is anything anyone can do to help, I would greatly appreciate it. Each writing experience is different and unique ........<br />Thanks.
