    You should be able to open an earlier version. What version of office was the old one created in? Usually you would have to save the document as an earlier version for users not on the most current. You may find a conversion program on Microsoft's site.

    The file history regularly backs up versions of your files in the Documents. If its lost can be restored have a look at this restore files in win 8.1.

    You may also needed to get a converter that causes Word to recognize Works files. Here is a link that is supposed to point to a converter.
