I have a large (10.5 MB) word document with imbedded PowerPoint, Visio, and excel docs in it that I have 25 + hrs into this week alone.
I tried to open it to continue my editing, but it wont open.
It gives me the error:

Word was unable to read this document. It may be corrupt.
Try one or more of the following:
*Open and Repair the file.
*Open the file with the Text Recovery converter.

Anyone know of a fix?

@salmaansheikh,
Perhaps your computer has a memory issue. If you can't open it to run the text converter, run memory diagnostics.

If it were me, and time was of the essence and I was stumped, I'd capture the file, copy it, run it on another computer.

If copying it over fails, I hate to say it, but you'll have to do a file recovery and find some computer data service to restore the file...at a point just before it failed.
