I've also used OO.org for this purpose. A couple of other tips for problem Word files:


- In Word, try saving to a non-DOC format file, like RTF, then open that file


- Keep a copy of AbiWord around to help rescue Word files in a similar fashion to the technique used with OO.org. I've had AbiWord work when OO.org or Word tricks wouldn't work
