If you open a word document, you may one day be faced with the error “A table in this document has become corrupt”.

There is however a simple fix for this.

From the File menu, select “open”.   In the open dialog box, select the document and then select “Open and Repair” using the drop down list next to the Open button.

This should repair the document and give you a report on what has been fixed.   You can then save the document to make the repair permanent.
