Important .docx file won't open. Corrupt.

Hi all. Posting on behalf of a good friend who has been working on a nursing project. She has written 3000 words and they were transferring the file between 2 laptops I believe via a USB stick. The file will now not open and I have also tried with no joy. As you can imagine she is mightily distressed!

I gather they were working on XP machines using Word 2007. I have Googled about quite a bit and not come up with anything to help so far. Can anyone here try to open and recover the data please?

I have tried renaming it to a .zip file and it still won't open. I have just been trying to open it with Openoffice and no joy with that either.

I'm in the office so any help on this would be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you,

Nick
