    Does it happen just when you try to open those two documents? Or other documents on your hard drive? If you happens just with those on the disks then the disks might be damaged or the files may have been corupted.

    hmm.....mathgirl32 gave me this link, http://www.nocrash.com/ncbbs/msgs/935.shtml , which says this:

    Normal.dot is the default template for Word when it first starts. It typically saves all the default settings in Word in the file. At times, this file can become corrupt or have conflicting settings. Therefore, it is necessary to delete the file. Word is programmed to write a new Normal.dot file when it is unable to find it. Therefore, the deletion of this file should not cause problems with Microsoft Word
    im currently trying to find this file...

    deleting the normal.dot file can be a solution to a corrupt template but your issue does not sound like a corrupt template. It sounds more like you have a bad disk where the two files are stored. If you can open all other work documents then normal.dot is not corrupt.

    Deleting normal.dot file is not always an options. Remember normal.dot is the default template file for word soooo.... all of the setting you might have in word...will be gone... This includes auto-text, customized toolbars and buttons everything.

    Try coping the file to the hard drive and see if you can open them. DO you have another copy of the file located somewhere else where you can make another copy and see if the new copies will open. have you attempt to run chkdsk on the diskette. IF you try to correct and error more likely then not it will trash the file but it might be able to recover...
