Microsoft Word Help!!!!

After not using a document for around a year I went back onto it and now it has all dodgy characters on it. Like little small squares instead of the screen shots and test that was originally there.

I think it's a bit like when you open a file in word but it isn't compatible with it....but I haven't used it for a year and so it should be the same.

I am running Office 2003 but have tried it on computers with Office XP and 97.

Thanks for any help

is everything else ok in word? if so the file could have become corrupted - do you have a backup of it somewhere?

Perhaps a font that was used in the document has gone AWOL or become corrupt. Have you removed any software? If so maybe the font went when you unloaded the package.
