Hello, It's easy to get solved - At first may I know what type of device you're using?

Mobile: Backup and reinstall a new version of wps office
Laptop: Backup and check register editor - Follow instructions - Current version and install licensed MS Word Package.

@Rajesh_365 Your suggestion is ridiculous.

@smsyazdan It is not unusual for the document.xml component of a Word document to contain thousands of xml commands and sometimes, just extracting the components from the archive and the re-zipping them is all that it takes to overcome issues.

If you use the FirstObjectEditor to open an xml file, it has a "parsing" utility that will indentify any errors in the xml code.
