Corrupted Word 2007 File - Unspecified Error

    Question

  • I have a problem with a corrupted file in Word 07 that will not open after some recent edits.

    The filename.docx cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents.

    Details: Unspecified Error

    Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line: 2, Column: 120132

    I've researched a bit and found some people have resolved by renaming the docx to zip and editting the document.xml direct. Without any prior XML knowledge or working with these documents I'm lost as to what to edit. It opens by default in IE which seems a bit unfriendly for finding the correct area to edit.

     

    Please advise.

     

    Thanks,

    Jeremy

  • I too have the same problem.  My message says

    The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents

    unspecified error

    Location:Part/word/document.xml,Line:2,Column:0

    I am currently using Office 2010 and windows 7.  I also had these issues with win 7 and Office 2007.

    The document is part of my maths degree and, I have only started using the maths addins last year, so I am only just coming to grips with it.  I am worried that in my final assignment I will get the same problems.

  • Hi,

    I can also confirm that this happens, likely connected to the equation editor.

    I noticed when Word was going awry (refused to scroll past page 8, produced graphical glitches I can best describe as: "repeating lines"), and so I swiftly saved several copies of the document, each at a different undo-state (Undo, save as, undo, save as...)
    I even copy/pasted everything to a new document and saved that as well.
    Then I closed word and once I confirmed via task manager that the process finished terminating, I reopened some of the backup documents at random. None reported any errors. But all copies of my document were "laggy", once I scrolled past the 8th page of the equations.

    When the lecture was over, I hibernated my laptop as usual and left the university, expecting to fix whatever the issue was at home... Only to find this, when trying to open any of the documents:

    the file *.docx cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents.
    word/document.xml line 2 column 0

    I wonder why it continued to work after restarting word in the classroom, but not one hour later at home.

    So now I'm in the process of wading through 185 kilobytes of painfully bloated xml code, looking for an error to fix, or at least salvageable parts to recover...
    The indicated line 2 column 0 is not helpful, as the entire xml file only consists of 2 lines, and all content save an xml version declaration is on line 2.

    Wish me luck!

  • Hi,

    I fixed it.
    It took me 20 minutes of unfruitful (fruitless?) research and then a mere 5 minutes of basic xml editing to fix the document in question. Then I spent an hour writing (and proofreading and proofreading again) this guide and now it is 1 am...

    Steps:

    1. Change your file extension from docx to zip *
    2. Extract word/document.xml *
    3. Using a Programmer's Notepad (I prefer Notepad++) replace >< with >\r\n< in extended mode to make the XML more readable, putting each tag on its own line. (The expression \r\n stands for new line in windows.) You can use regexp mode or multi-line replace in other text editors, or copy a newline/hidden paragraph symbol and paste it in the replace box. (Which works even in Word.)
    4. Import the modified word/document.xml back into the archive *
    5. Rename it back from zip to docx *
    6. Attempt to open the document
    7. Note that this time the error message will be more useful, for example it will tell you that the error is at: line 13540, as opposed to line 2 column 0.
    8. Go to the line specified (was 13540 for me) and remove it. And the tags around it too, if necessary. Make sure you keep the XML well-formatted! (You can attempt to fix the erroneous line instead of removing it, but usually the indicated line is as useless as the other lines around it, so removal will not result in any loss of data. See the note** below for why this is.)
    9. Import document.xml and rename zip/docx as usual. *
    10. Repeat steps 6-9 until your document is recovered. (Took me 5 repeats, as more errors arose at lines 15870, 13595, 13222 and 10835.*** (Not sure why it found errors in reverse order, but it did.)

    * These steps are unnecessary if you use Total Commander (or other advanced file managers). It can look inside docx files as if they were folders because it automatically recognizes them as compressed archives. It also lets you edit files easier, just press F4. And it even detects file changes and asks if it should reimport your edited files into the archive upon closing the editor.

    ** Note: To me it seems that none of the errors were real. While the source code was extremely bloated and wasteful, every indicated error was a line with completely well formed XML. (Around it was good XML too.) For pages and pages, almost every line repeated the same statement:

    <w:rPr><w:rFonts w:ascii="Cambria Math" w:hAnsi="Cambria Math"/></w:rPr>

    *** There is no reason to pay attention to my line numbers, I only included them to show you how many lines my document had. Over ten thousand lines of XML just to describe an 8 pages long document... Crazy!
    *** And of course the case of word finding errors in reverse order is quite peculiar.

    p.s.: Helpful people over at answers.microsoft.com can recover your document for you (I saw pages upon pages of recovered documents), and now that I figured it out I can attempt to help you here as well. I shall remain subscribed to this topic.


    http://3ice.hu/

    Edit reason: Removed unnecessary step: "Delete a random file from the archive and it will trigger text recovery in word. And what's great is that I was able to recover all of my equations, not just the text! (I deleted the entire customXml folder for it looked suspicious/useless. But you can probably delete something smaller, like word\fontTable.xml or word\webSettings.xml.)"

  • Re: The deleted message above this post by massiveProjectDue

    I was able to identify the problem in your document and fixed it successfully. I would send you a PM with the recovered document, but this forum does not seem to offer private messaging...

    For your information, this was the part that caused the corruption in the word/document.xml file:

    <w:hyperlink w:anchor="__RefHeading__17224_679957151">
    <w:r>
    <w:fldChar w:fldCharType="begin">
    </w:fldChar>
    </w:r>
    <w:r>
    <w:instrText> TOC </w:instrText>
    </w:r>
    <w:r>
    <w:fldChar w:fldCharType="separate"/>
    </w:r>
    <w:r>
    <w:rPr>
    <w:rStyle w:val="style21"/>
    </w:rPr>
    <w:t xml:space="preserve">1.Introduction </w:t>
    <w:tab/>
    <w:t>1</w:t>
    </w:r>
    </w:hyperlink>
    The above code refers to an (according to Word) invalid TOC (Table of Contents).

    Having a Table of Contents is indeed the most common cause for document corruption according to my research.

    p.s.: How could I get the fixed document to you privately?

  • Hi,

    Here is my updated guide on how to fix corrupt word documents with error "the file *.docx cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents. word/document.xml line 2 column 0":

    1. Change your file extension from docx to zip
    2. Extract word/document.xml from the zip
    3. Using a Programmer's Notepad (Such as Notepad++) replace >< with >\r\n< in extended mode to put each XML tag on its own line. (The expression \r\n stands for new line in windows.) You can use regexp mode or multi-line replace in other text editors, or copy a newline/hidden paragraph symbol and paste it in the replace box. (That works even in Word.)
    4. Import the modified word/document.xml back into the zip archive
    5. Rename the extension back from zip to docx 
    6. Attempt to open the document in Word now
    7. Note that this time the error message will be more useful; It will tell you that the error is at: line 13540, as opposed to the meaningless line 2.
    8. Go to the line specified (was 13540 for me) and remove it along with all of its XML children. (From opening tag: <w:something> to closing tag:</w:something>.) Make sure you keep the XML well formatted!
    9. Import the modified document.xml and rename from zip to docx again.
    10. Repeat steps 6-9 if necessary, until no more errors show up and your document is recovered.

    1. Edit corrupt.docx/word/document.xml, replacing every occurrence of >< with >\r\n< (This puts each XML tag on its own line.)
    2. Attempt to open the document in Word
    3. Go to the line specified in the now much more useful error message and remove the XML element on that line along with all of its children. Keep the XML code valid.
    4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until no more errors show up and your document is recovered.

  • I'm sorry, that's a near-blank file. As far as I know Word uses it for tracking or locking documents or something like permission management.

    It's only 162 bytes big. I need the file without ~$ in the name, that starts with "Written", not "~$itten". Its size also needs to be at least 10 kilobytes, but usually way over 100 kb.

    This is all the recoverable text your "document" contains: "Chanel MingLiU SimSun Dotum Nň<3žaaya°x°a¤"

    I look forward to receiving your actual document.

  • I tried saving it a different way. I was working on this file and saved just a few minutes before I knocked my laptop clear off the table onto the floor. Despite having saved it, the file disappeared. I was able to recover it using recuva, but it was altered. The fiile named originally started with "Written" It was only a couple paragraphs originally.

    I was open to open it with OpenOffice and only got gobbledeegook.

    Is it possible the file is "bad'?

  • You are right. I have hurt your feelings. I'm sorry, that was uncalled for. 

    Despite all the negative things I directed towards you, I'm still willing and eager to fix your document. I'm very interested in this kind of stuff. Your case especially, because...

    Mechanical damage like knocking a laptop to the floor hardly ever causes damage to just one file. The hard drive is either left perfectly intact or thousands of sectors are wiped clean at once. (The ones that happen to spin past the disk heads at the moment of impact. Picture below.) Especially since today's laptops now include active hard drive protection that parks the heads if the machine is dropped, to offer the greatest possible chance of survival in such an unfortunate event.

    But I must say this:
    I feel my above comment was justified. Renaming a temporary lock file (162 bytes) won't suddenly make it into an entire recoverable document (20+ kilobytes).

    And this:
    Did your "different method" involve retyping the entire document perchance?

  • I have followed your instructions, and have replaced every occurrence of >< with >\r\n<, then re-inserted document.xml back into the word document, but I still have the error on line 2. Could you please help me fix this file?

    http://www.mediafire.com/?39cw57r7j465252

    I'm fairly certain the reason why it isn't opening is because of a corrupted equation at the end of the document. I can't open it in Word to remove it, and trying to do so in WordPad won't allow me to save it back in Word 2010 format.

    You seem to be having a lot of success fixing these documents.

    I am having the same difficulties, however I am not able to get beyond the error being located in line 2.

    I do have an index, a table of authorites and a table of contents but the document is mostly a text file as opposed to the above ones being equation based.

    Hoping that you can help me, as you have generously helped the others, thanks for your time,

    So I worked out that it opens in Word 2010 - but not in Word 2007.

    Hence I am just using a different computer. I read somewhere that there is a glitch with 2007 and XML.

    Thanks for looking at it for me - really appreciated,

  • Hi,

    Wow that's quite different from the usual errors here. The problem is two-fold:

    The zip container was damaged. I extracted everything I could and repacked it fresh, but some files were lost in the process. I replaced those with the default ones from a blank word document.
    And the 4000 lines long document.xml that I was able to partially recover was also damaged beyond repair after line 1500:

    Here is everything I was able to save:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?dvpnl59w9dnmbp9
    (The first two pages)

    And beyond that, some text I could extract (got worse and worse as I scrolled down):

  • Wow thank you so much! I didn't realise it was so damaged, thank you for trying and what you have managed to recover is amazing and much appreciated. Just a quick question - do you think there is no chance of being able to recover the rest of the text? Even without the formatting of the word document, just the actual words that were written? Though I'm guessing by the scrambled bit you have posted above, there's a very high chance not! Thanks so much again :)

  • Hi,

    Unless you have previous versions of the document, I don't know how we could recover more.

    The damage seems to be: The second part of document.xml was duplicated and overwritten by itself but with an offset, in such an unlucky manner that the markup perfectly covered your text, effectively deleting it.

    Furthermore, the average document.xml contains 50 thousand xml tags (in this case, lines) and yours only has 4 thousand. It gets cut off very early on.

  • Ah no previous version unfortunately! But thank you very much for all of your help with this, very much appreciated :) my friend has hopefully learnt from this!

  • I had the same problem as Torgo13. If you're using Notepad++ (version 6 is what I have currently), you must click the "Extended (\n, \r, ..." bullet in the Search Mode box in order for it to interpret >\r\n< as a new line. After I did that, repackaged, and reopened in Word I started getting meaningful line numbers.

  • Hi

    I am facing the same problem of "unspecified error" and have tried to follow your steps faithfully for recovery. But even after replacing all >< with >\r\n<, the newline characters are not inserted and I do not get meaningful line numbers.

    I have uploaded my file to this location :

    http://www.mediafire.com/view/?rbkkifc1csc1lpc

    Is it possible for you to look into it and try to repair it? I have to submit this Assessment tomorrow and am in real panic!

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hey, I did it! Followed your steps again very carefully and it was recovered!

    Thanks a ton

  • Hi,

    I have similar problem with the word document, it is been the 2nd time that I am writing it and each time that I close it and want to open it ,there is an error message saying:

    'the name in the end tag of the element must match the element type in the start tag... Location:/word/document.xml,Line:2,Column:26973'

    I really need some help..

    I have put the doc on ftp://ftp.gns.cri.nz/incoming/Karine/Theory (Autosaved).docx

    Thanks.

  • This is a little different from the usual errors here.

    I had to cut away a bigger portion from the document than I usually do. Here is everything removed, a total of 184 lines from around line 1350:

    Looking at the source code, I can see that it was a figure/diagram about something's fluid density, fluid velocity, and porosity. You'll have to recreate that drawing.

    And here is your fixed document: mediafire.com/?u5qeiiwhe4e9492

  • That is very impressive what you have done!

    I do not understand what you have done , i will look at it later ,,

    You save me a lot of time.

    I didn't think I will recover it, therefore I was using Latex.

    Is it possible to do it for the Contentsf (2) also on the same website?

    Thank you very much .

    First of all I want to tell you I m not here to get backlinks. When I got this forum, tried  to open this link (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/31681020/template%20JAS%202007_19.docx) but it was not working may be file was removed. So I could not check the file with above mentioned software. And one more thing I have tried Stellar Phoenix & RepairmyWord software to repair my corrupt files & got successful results.

  • Change your file extension from docx to zip
  • Extract word/document.xml from the zip
  • Using a Programmer's Notepad (Such as Notepad++) replace >< with >\r\n< in extended mode to put each XML tag on its own line. (The expression \r\n stands for new line in windows.) You can use regexp mode or multi-line replace in other text editors, or copy a newline/hidden paragraph symbol and paste it in the replace box. (That works even in Word.)
  • Import the modified word/document.xml back into the zip archive
  • Rename the extension back from zip to docx 
  • Attempt to open the document in Word now
  • Note that this time the error message will be more useful; It will tell you that the error is at: line 13540, as opposed to the meaningless line 2.
  • Go to the line specified (was 13540 for me) and remove it along with all of its XML children. (From opening tag: <w:something> to closing tag:</w:something>.) Make sure you keep the XML well formatted!
  • Import the modified document.xml and rename from zip to docx again.

  • Hi 3ICE,

    Ive been having the same problem, but all possible solutions stated above do not work. I've tried .xml editor Serna Free, Notepad++ but nothing works. could you please take a look at my corrupted file and check what is wrong with it? I thought the error would be in the table that I linked with excel, but it might also be the index, contents table or something.

    I hope to hear from you soon. have spent three hours so far at work and no progress.

    Sadly, that's a pdf file, not docx. Despite its misleading file extension.

    Alas, I can't do anything with pdf files, sorry.

    If you can get back to me with a real docx file, I'll be able to help you.

    Friday, May 31, 2013 9:53 AM
  • Hi,

    Got it, didn't find any signs of corruption though. Even mediafire can display it. (Click the link you posted.)

    I saved it as a safe copy to get rid of any lingering errors. Latest docx format.

    I recommend you switch from *.emf files to *.png, as they are far better able to be compressed.

    word\media\image4.emf for example takes up 2.18 MB of space, while the same picture compressed in png only needs 86.7 KB ... That is 25 times less!

  • Hi 3ICE, I believe its something in my word settings that is causing the problem. a friend of mine was also able to open the docx. on a linux computer, but errors keep occuring here. even the file you uploaded gave me the following error:

    Do you have any idea what could cause this?

    Thx for the help!

    Monday, June 3, 2013 7:27 AM
  • Hi,

    Open this one, I've modified it slightly so it'll give me a more usable error message to work with (line number won't be #2):

    mediafire.com/download/t7k9zfvu3uq2fx9/Project_Report2_-_fixed_by_3ICE_v2.docx

    Or if you are impatient, you could try following my guide. Just search for "proposed as answer" (with CTRL+F) and you'll find it.

    In an attempt to also fix your problem, I removed a METRIC TON of data from it, this all is the code I erased:

    Thx for the help, was able to open your first file on Word2010 and replaced some of the layout. Your new files do open but are quite laggy on word 2007. however, it is fixed now! Thx for the amazing support!

    Now does any1 know a thread on conditional formatting in Microsoft Excel?

    cheers,

    I followed your directions for editing the XML based on the error lines given by Word, however, I get a message "unable to open because parts are missing".  Do you have time to take a look at an original version of the corrupt file?

  • Of course!

    But why do so many people do this?

    Exhibit A (good, 2 messages exchanged, you didn't do this):
    -Can you help me with this problem?
    -Yes, here is the solution.

    Exhibit B (bad, 4 messages exchanged, you did this):
    -Can you help me?
    -Yes
    -Thanks, here is the problem I need help with.
    -Solved.

    The way you ask for help (B), you waste two messages ("Can you help me?" and the obvious answer, to it: "Yes."). They are two, entirely pointless messages.

  • That's a pdf file, not docx. As explained previously:

    Alas, I can't do anything with pdf files, sorry.

    If you can get back to me with a real docx file, I'll be able to help you.

    p.s. I compressed your images as I find 7 MB to be obnoxiously large for a simple manuscript. Now you images are below 1MB. Please don't save photographs in the PNG file format in the future, that's not what PNG was invented for. Photographs - JPG. Screenshots - PNG. (Generally...)

  • The reason why it was a pdf file is all dropbox's fault.
    They automatically convert docx files to pdf for whatever reason, when sharing... I had to manually click a second download link, after they forcibly shoved the pdf file in my face.
    I'll talk to an employee at dropbox about this inconsistent behavior.

  • Hello 3ICE

    You look to be a man with some skills within' fixing broken Word documents. I have a docx document, with a lot of equations in it, and after Word started acting weird, I saved and closed Word. Now I can't open it. I'm currently using Word for Mac 2011, and have tried renaming to .doc, tried opening on a PC in Word 2007, tried opening in OpenOffice + tried a lot of other possibly random stuff.

    Could you try to have a look at it? Would be highly appreciated! I need the document for my exam this coming wednesday, so I'm really stressed out right now.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/bje6ot2bii5zm17/Eksamen.docx

    Hope you have the time to look at it, thanks in advance if you do!

    Best regards

    Peter

  • Hi,

    Yes, that document is beyond repair. Half the files inside it were damaged and worst of all; your document.xml is cut dangerously short.

    I repaired it as best as I could, but there is no helping it:
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/46wjgky1ot0jpdk/Paper+filosofie+partially+recovered+and+repaired+by+3ICE.docx

    Here is a screenshot showing a healthy document.xml and your damaged document.xml side by side:

    Sincerely,

    Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai

    p.s.: Here is all of the raw text I extracted from your document.xml:

    De wereldarmoede is en blijft een zeer interessant en belangrijk onderwerp om over na te denken en onderzoek naar te doen. Vele boeken, essays en artikelen snijden het onderwerp aan en deze zijn vaak naar een eenduidig antwoord op de vraag: waarom blijven ontwikkelingslanden arm en hoe kunnen de problemen opgelost worden? Het gegeven dat het overgrote gedeelte van de welvaart in handen is van een heel klein percentage mensen spreekt heel erg tot de verbeelding en maakt bij veel mensen een sterk gevoel van oneerlijkheid los. De meeste mensen zouden het heel erg graag anders zien maar de oorzaken van dit gegeven zijn zeer complex en hebben diepe wortels in de samenleving en de wereldeconomie. Door middel van een kritische benadering van de invloedrijke theorie over rechtvaardigheid van John Rawls probeert Thomas Pogge aan te tonen dat de benadering die momenteel door veel mensen uit eerste wereld landen over derde wereld landen een foutieve is. Volgens Pogge zijn de meesten bezig met de vraag over hoeveel van onze welvaart doorgesluisd moet worden naar de derde wereld. Pogge kiest een andere benadering: hij legt het overgrote merendeel van de oneerlijke verdeling bij het politieke en economische beleid van de ontwikkelde landen zelf. Zijn strekking luidt: de ontwikkelde landen hebben de onderontwikkelde landen gemaakt tot wat ze zijn en houdt ze ook nog eens vastgepind op deze positie in de periferie. Hij gaat hiermee in tegen veel historici en economen die een toch zeker een groot gedeelte van de verantwoordelijkheid leggen bij de politiek, de cultuur en de geschiedenis van de onderontwikkelde landen zelf. Hij pleit dus eigenlijk voor een algehele verandering in deze beleidsvormen boven het almaar  ‘wegkopen’ van de schuldgevoelens die de ontwikkelde landen jegens de derde wereld lijken te hebben.

  • 3ICE, you seem to be very good at this and would like you to take a look at this 128MB document for me. I have uploaded it to the server with the zip extension and have already added the line returns.

    Do your best please :)

    http://millfields.freedomhosting.org.uk/school/Whole dissertation - Copy - Copy.zip

    Let me know when you have downloaded a copy so that I may remove it from the server.

    Monday, July 1, 2013 10:29 AM
  • Hi,

    Oh yes I am getting very good at this... So many corrupt documents! One would think Microsoft would fix this already, but no, not yet.

    Your dissertation however, will pose considerable challenge due to its massive 100MB+ size. Consider cutting down on the number of your images, and especially cropping the more important ones. For example the Windows UI should not be visible in screenshots, and there should be no unused space on the left and right sides of documents opened in Word, etc.

    Here is what I removed from your document in order to repair it:

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/cb78w9jd37t0cln/Whole_dissertation_parts_removed_by_3ICE.zip

    And here is the repaired document:

  • Dear Ben,

    Indeed I am the right man!

    Here is your fixed document:
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/oz8gf0srdgbaxnc/Engr446Report+fixed+by+3ICE.docx

    And here is what I had to remove, from around line 6000 in the source code:
    "This tuning method failed to produce acceptable results since it was difficult to"

    It appears to have been some random text inside an equation block.
    Don't forget to find where it was and put it back, but do it differently this time so it doesn't re-corrupt. (Outside the equation block should be safe.)

  • Hello!
    I think I have the same problem - I have a docx document that won't open after formating and is giving an Unspecified Error. I've tried OpenOffice but to no avail. The document was created in Word 2007 and includes equations (I'm running 2008 on Mac). I'd really appreciate any help you could offer!
    All the best,

    Alternatively, if you want to help yourself, you can find the tutorial I wrote above.

    Yet it isn't recognized as one by this forum. We know how to remove the spaces, but software doesn't.

    Glad to hear your issue was resolved.

  • Sorry, there is nothing I can do for that kind of corruption.

    The first one isn't even a modern, docx file. But it doesn't look like a doc file either. Instead of data, it contains only random noise. Perhaps it's encrypted or compressed without a header?

    The second one, while carrying the docx extension, is nothing but random noise as well. Sorry.

    What kind of virus did this? Is it the good old "Your whole hard drive has been encrypted, please pay 250$ for our special decryption program to get your data back" scheme?

  • Ice,

    You are something else to have established this procedure. I'm going to try to program an open source application that uses your kindly provided algorithm and share some resulting revenue with you :-). I have some DOCX recovery open source stuff on Sourceforge:  http://sourceforge.net/users/socrtwo22. It uses XML validators to find the first error, then a truncator to truncate usually 50 character upstream of the error. Finally it uses xmllint to add the appropriate new end tags.

    This kind of approach is effective for XML that trails off into irretrievable garbage, but for document.xml files that have only lapses of bad XML before returning to good stuff, it is obviously overkill. So your way is the answer.

    I will provide a link when I get the program togethor. I'm sending you a donation :-).

    Saturday, September 21, 2013 6:39 AM
  • Hi,

    That sounds awesome! And thank you for the 22$, it came as a very nice surprise. I clicked follow on your SF profile to get news about any developments from your project first hand. The projects that interested me most were: Savvy Repair for Microsoft Office, Corrupt DOCX Salvager, Corrupt Office Salvager, Savvy DOCX Recovery, XML Truncator-Fixer, Corrupt Office 2007 Extractor, and S2 Recovery Tools for Microsoft Word.

    Back to the new project: Be advised that in most of the cases I've dealt with here; the "corrupted" document.xml was still a valid XML file. As far as I can tell anyway; All elements appeared to be nested in the right order and were closed properly. Not sure if they were in accordance with the specifications laid out by the Office Open XML Document schema, but I assume they were.

    When repairing these corrupt documents I'm actually just carefully cutting away more and more good, perfectly valid lines of XML code from the document around the reported error location, until Office finally stops complaining or finds the next "error's" offset.

    If I'm right  if we are dealing with valid document.xml files  then you'll need to use a different approach for fixing these generic errors; There must be some way to get the "document.xml, Line: 2, Column: *" error output from the dialog Microsoft Office Word pops up.
    I wonder if there's something in the API for that... I'm sorry to say that I've never actually looked at the Office API.

    Sincerely,
    Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai

  • Daniel,

    Thanks so much for your enthusiasm. I have already made progress. I can now extract the error messages from Word, essentially using Word itself as my XML validator, which is much preferable to what I was doing in the past which was using 3rd party XML validators, which might be much quicker but don't behave the way Word does. It would be really cool if I could find a command line version of a Microsoft XML validator that uses the exact code that Word uses.

    Anyway, I wanted to list some other free solutions I have found other than my own for recovering from corrupt DOCX for users too shy or too much of a hurry to get a free recovery by a generous soul like yourself.

    I was wondering if you would mind helping me with my document please.  I get the error message "The name in the end tag of the element must match the element type in the start tag" I have tried following tutorials to fix this issue but I just get lost in the code.  If you can solve my problem for me then I will add a contribution to your paypal account.  I apologise this is a large document but it does include a lot of images.

    I have managed to fix my document now, thanks anyway.  Through following this tutorial and a lot of trial and error: 

    runferalrun.wordpress.com/2012/08/31/the-name-in-the-end-tag-of-the-element-word-2010-error/

  • Another very large document. Should be fun!
    It'll take a couple minutes to download though. Currently at 3%.

    Edit: Wow, your document is massive! Did you know there are 27 682 400 characters of XML code behind it? This is caused mostly by three or four overly complex shape-diagrams that should have been simple pictures. All that data brought one of my plugins in Notepad++ (favorite XML editor) to its knees.

    Edit 2: Just noticed your second post, I'm glad you were able to fix it.

    That tutorial you linked makes the user jump through many unnecessarily complex hoops, however. Like renaming files at the command prompt... Who does that today?

    But ultimately, it works. And I'd have used the same method too, except I always skip right to what was originally step 6.

    And instead of closing the unclosed tags, I delete them as they are corrupt anyway.

  • Here's my updated freeware, Corrupt DOCX Recovery (without attached adware offers). It should fix most "Unspecified" and "The name in the end tag of the element must match the element type in the start tag" Microsoft Word errors. Many thanks to Daniel for his algorithm which got me started in making this version of the program which I think greatly improves it. There was an earlier version, available from my Sourceforge project, which was flummoxed by unspecified errors.

    http://hostedfiles.wherehaveibeen.info/savvy_corrupt_DOCX_setup_2.0.0_no_offers.exe

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated, especially notification and links to files that the program can't fix :-).

  • Very useful program! It does automatically what I have been doing manually. (Steps 1-4 in my tutorial so far.)

    Now to get the remaining 6 steps automated, we'll have to iron out a crash when trying methods 1-3...
    Here is the log:

    The zipRepaired_* folders are created successfully, and they contain megabytes of data. But the zipRepaired_2_*.docx files are not always created. And even when they are, they remain unfixed, so I still do that manually. (When created, they look like identical copies of the source files. Same size, same error in Word. In fact, their md5 hashes match.)

    Method 4 opens two blank txt documents. One of my Notepad++ plugins TextFX does not like being opened twice in quick succession, but that is a bug I'll report to the npp-plugins project.

    error.txt contains: 'doctotext.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    For our reference, the location of doctotext.exe on my machine is:
    C:\Users\Daniel\AppData\Local\Savvy DOCX Recovery\doctotext.exe

  • And it works! Successfully repaired every document I could throw at it.

    Text extraction (method 4) still gives me blank files, however. The error.txt is the same.

    The program does not try looking for doctotext.exe in its install directory. Scans through every folder in my %PATH% environment variable, but it's not there.

    Possible user friendliness improvement: Clicking [Browse] should stop showing the same popup after I've OK'd it away 10+ times.

    Wednesday, November 6, 2013 10:59 PM
  • Daniel,

    I'm excited that it works. Cool. I think I fixed the text extraction now. The install routine should enter the install directory as part of the System's path and removes it if you uninstall the program.

    I will work on fixing the popup issue. If you like, let me know of any other suggestions you might have.

  • After a few days of trying your method, and trying various recovery products (paid and free),  I'm still unable to recover this file.   The most annoying part is that I know the data is still in there, because I can see it on my iPhone reader program, but Microsoft Word won't display it.   LibreOffice will display the first part of the document (sections 1 thru 4), but there are at least twelve sections in these notes. 

    The file is found at http://www.mediafire.com/download/a3vzwjds8lw5zgr/Wireshark_notes.docx

    Anything you could do to recover the other eight sections of this document would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is your fixed document:
    mediafire.com/download/b6h7cvzellu4a86/Wireshark+notes+fixed+by+Daniel+3ICE+Berezvai.docx
    Took me about 40 minutes.

    I only had to remove one entry from your table of contents: "15.Common Display filters" as it was corrupt. Please re-add it.

    And I cleaned up a couple loose </hyperlink> close tags that had no open tag, which was also causing Word to fail to open your work. No data was lost from this cleanup though. Only the one line I mentioned above.

    Sincerely,
    Daniel "3ICE" Berezvai

    Could you, please, explain how to avoid this kind of error in the future?

    Saturday, December 14, 2013 7:04 AM
  • You didn't do anything wrong. This is Microsoft's fault.

    It's a very rare, but widespread and persistent bug that they haven't been able to track down yet. I have all the hotfixes and patches, the latest version of Word, yet still encountered this issue once, back in 2012. (On February 28 to be exact.)

  • Hi Daniel;

    I've posted another docx file problem on Mediafire, in hopes that you can help me with it.  As before, the Paypal amount should have already arrived in your account.  You don't have to stop watching your movie this time, :-) this isn't a rush.  I know it's the 'busy season'.    These are just personal technical notes that I'd rather not lose.  http://www.mediafire.com/view/26mg9kfjw9nlssg/NETWORK%20notes.docx

    I think I understand what caused this problem, and I have a permanent solution.   I installed Ubuntu on one of my PC's recently, because I couldn't get Win8 to do any work.  Files were edited alternately between Win7 with Office 2012, and Ubuntu with LibreOffice 3.  Both systems were patched appropriately.  My solution is to stop using Office and install LibreOffice on all my systems.  

    Thanks for your efforts!

    Gord.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your donation, it is very much appreciated.

    Not only was your document.xml thrice corrupt, this time even the word/footnotes.xml file had an error. There was an extra </hyperlink> closing tag that somehow got in there. To fix it, I deleted line 290.

    I also removed one corrupt table of contents entry from the document, please manually re-add it or regenerate the table of contents. This was the text I erased:
    8.4.1.ngrep - Network grep 61

    Finally, I removed two corrupt lines from document.xml: line 1750, and line 64858. No data was lost from this operation, the lines were unnecessary. They served only to mislead the parser into throwing more errors.

    Here is the repaired document:

  • Hi,

    The only equation that was corrupt, came after the line
    "Skolos likutis periodo pradžioje apskaičiuojamas pagal formulę:"

    I have removed it directly from document.xml, and changed nothing else in your work.

    The equation looked something like this:
    Dn=Dn−1−dn−1D_n=D_(n-1)-d_(n-1).
    (Recovered it from socrtwo's version, though his looked like boxes: ☐☐=☐☐-1-☐☐-1 etc.)

    Fixed document:

    Code I removed from around the 6165th XML tag in document.xml:

  • Dear Daniel,

    I experienced the same 'line 2 / column 0' error and could fix it - with thousand thanks to your advice - on my very own.

    No idea how, but indeed on my own... That said being a complete newbie having seen an xml file the first time!

    all the best for your future,

    kindly,

    Herman

  • Dear 3ICE,

    I have tried and tried but I cannot seem to recover my document that's showing the same error as everyone else.

    If you could take a look at it I would be so grateful.

  • Hi,

    You actually had a slightly different error, but it was fixable still. I don't know how much of the document was lost, or if any part of it was lost at all. Please make sure everything is still in there.

    Here is your working document:

  • Hi Daniel,

    I converted the docx file to zip, but i still can't get it open in winzip in order to view the xml code, it keeps coming up with "Cannot open file; it does not appear to be a valid archive."

    I've tried zip repair pro to no avail.

    IS there anything you can suggest so that i can acess the code?

    Thanks in advance (and apologies if it's a fundamentally idiotic question).

  • I'll need a copy of your document before I can say anything.

    Make sure you don't convert. Simply rename the file, as in change the file extension to zip.

  • Hi 3ICE, would you be willing to help me too with my file?

    I'll openly admit I have virtually zero understanding of what you're doing, but my translated file is huge and I can't get it open. Deadline is looming.

    Because I knew it was such a large file, I did several tests along the way to make sure it would open properly. It did with no problem several times so I stopped testing. I'm guessing the problem occurred after my last test.

    I'm getting the message

    The file WW_Catalogue_2014_low-res_English cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents

    Details

    Unspecified error

    Location: Part: /word/document.xml, Line 64769, Column: 53

    Any help you can offer will make me your fan for life.

    Thanks,

  • Follow-up,

    I found a workaround with the my translation software that removes the error message in Word. So no need to help with my problem.

    Anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation with a translated Word file from Trados Studio 2011, try this:

    http://kb.sdl.com/#tab:homeTab:crumb:7:artId:4731

    It worked for me like a charm (and was simple enough for me to understand ;) )

  • Hi 3ICE, 

    I have the same problem. i suspect it is also because of the table of contents or maybe the list of table. I tried everything I can to recover the files with no success.

    Here is the file: http://www.mediafire.com/view/0156hazb381gxqc/Thesis_Draft.zip

  • Bad news,

    That's a corrupt zip, and nothing I tried was able to repair it. The most important file, document.xml is missing almost 2 MB of data from it, which is over 90% of its contents. Two pages are all Word can recover, it did not differ whether I ran it on your original zip or my recovered docx.

    An observation I made that I found interesting: Based on the pictures in the /media/ folder, your thesis seems to be about nose flutes. The recovered document however, seems to be a lecture plan on force (physics) with sentences like:

    May the FORCE be with you,
    Daniel

    p.s.: Do not use the force to destroy or hurt others. Use the force for the good!

  • Hi 3ICE,

    I noticed the same. I copied the file and extracted the document.xml file and opened it using XML Reader. I did not recognize the information except for the last line you mentioned. I find it highly unusual because those files were written independently. It's as if the two files were merged. I guess  I just have to redo the changes I made. Thanks for the help. Now I know I can't do anything about it. :P

  • It could be Word or even Windows that is having the problem. Before you start trying to restore a backup or repair a file, try opening other documents. Try opening your "corrupt" document from another computer. Also you can try to make a copy of corrupted files. (It could work)

    But if nothing helps, you can try to recover it by using Recovery Toolbox for Word.  Download free demo versions of this software from Recovery Toolbox website:  http://www.repairword.recoverytoolbox.com/ It’s gonna help.

  • Hi,

    Thanks to all for the help.

    I got there as well using the tips here. The problem I found is that the Maths Equations are adding so much nonsense into the Word document that they often crash without having saved properly, and then they never open again.

    As mentioned, you need to -

    1. Get hold of Notepad++

    2. Save the damaged Word file as xxx.zip from xxx.docx (NOT xxx.docx.zip)

    3. Open the zip folder, then the Word subfolder, then get the "document" file, and open it using Notepad++

    4. Separate the lines, as it is all written on two lines. The suggestion of \r\n didn't work for me, but there is an option in Notepad++ to separate the lines using the Edit - Line Operations - Split Lines.

    5. Save it like this. Close the zip folder and rename it back to xxx.docx.

    6. Open again in Word and it should be more helpful with where the problem is. Rather than line 2, column xxxxxxx, you should now have problem at line xxxx, column xxx, which you can then find.

    7. Go through steps 2 to 4 again and delete the bit that is causing the problem, but keep the tags in pairs so you are not adding further problems. Then repeat steps 5 and 6.

    8. Repeat until all is good.

  • David,

    My suggestion for why the \r\n didn't work is because you need to move the radio button in the Replace Window from "Normal" to "Extended" mode:

    The replace Window of Notepad++ with the radio button moved to

    This is the result:

    Resulting text with each tag on its own line.

    This result may be more useful, because when splitting the lines, you end up with many tags on one line, whereas the \r\n method results in just one tag per line, so Word will pinpoint better the tag where things go wrong.

  • Hi,

    I have the same problem with my document.

    Could you please help me to recover it?

  • Hi,

    If you only need the plain text, then the simple way is:

    1. Rename .docx to .zip.

    2. Unzip the contents in .zip.

    3. In the unzipped folders, go into the 'word' subfolder.

    4. Open the document.xml with notepad.

    5. You can find most of the contents in plain text. Just copy them out is the simplest way to recover the contents.

    Hope that helps!

  • I would like to share my experience on how I solved the problem:

    A big trick is that, the location the error had pointed out (i.e. "line2, colxxx") is not necessarily the actual place that's going wrong. The problem might be before this point. I realized this when I deleted the tag at the prompt location and it refers me to the end of the file.

    Long words short spoken,  you should try to delete large parts of you content, then narrow down step by step. For me I deleted all contents between <w:p > and </w:p> tags which contains the corrupted area. It solved the problem, and luckily what I had lost is just two images.

    And for doing this you have to have the right tool, most code editing tools will work, but somehow Notepad++ worked the best. The trick in using this tool is you should enable text wrap, which makes it a lot easier. Also the short cut key "Ctrl+G" can let you select which place you want to go to by selecting the "offset" value. Notepad can even highlight the matching tags which makes life a lot easier.

    As a conclusion: Just delete the bad parts to make it work. But of course make sure you have backed up the original file.

    And this is based on the fact you have already known how to unzip the docx file, and edit on the /word/document.xml file. If not check on the other posts.

    Good luck!

  • Hey everyone!

    I know this was posted a while back, but I think that anyone may encounter this problem as I had, just a few minutes ago.

    I discovered such a simple, super easy solution to the 'Unspecified Error' that it will have you slapping your head in disbelief:

    I simply found an online document converter and converted my document from .docx to .doc and I was able to read the document and all it's features perfectly fine.

    I think that this is the easiest solution, especially for those of us that don't understand a darn thing about coding and etc. 

    If your document needs to be in the .docx format, all you'd need to do is do whatever changes you wanted to make or check on the .doc version of your document, then either use the online converter to change it back, or alter the name of your document and save it under the .docx format within Microsoft word, although I have no idea if the document will be readable once reverted back to the .docx format by you on your computer.

    That being said, live long and prosper.
