Fortunately, the answer seems to be Yes! See the attached file - check if it has all the content and formatting it should have.

Has this been saved in MS Office format at any stage? There seemed to be problems with the comments.

I originally got it as an MS Office file D: I think that explains why.

Thanks for the quick fix. It's a file I need for work!

I opened the file again, and did a few edits, and saved it. It won't open again. Can you please help me one more time?

Also, does the error come from writing comments and such? If so, I'll remove them when i can access the document again to avoid having to come back here again :D

The problem is having track changes enabled and the file having been in .doc/.docx format.

 Edit: For the record, the usual multiple comment near the start. This is what we see when we correct the file - it is not necessarily an analysis of the actual cause.

A quick bit of research on other similar problems here suggests it may be related to Track Changes - perhaps you could disable that after accepting any changes needed.
