Microsoft Office Error Messages
When trying to open MS office file sent to me by Email they caused a "Grave error" and MS office failed to respond. I got hold of said files on a flash drive and when trying to open them, same thing, office failed to respond and "grave error". I,ve updated my office program with zero results. Any ideas?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sounds like a corrupt file on the flash drive.  Maybe go back to where the file was before it was put on the flash drive.

    You received a message that said "Grave error"?  I have never heard that one before.  Googled it, nothing...

    Although I use 2003, I do occasionally get a comment upon trying to open a file that goes something along the line of "The last time this file was opened it caused a grave error.  Do you wish to try anyway?"  But I can't find an official error message code or reconstruct the error.  That's why I think he's got a corrupted file on the flash drive.
