Q: You have been working from your home office creating your company’s annual report in Microsoft Word. Upon attempting to open the annual report on a computer at your company’s office, an error message is displayed stating that the file format cannot be recognized. What might have caused this?

    File may have become corrupt during transport, or you’re using a newer version of Word at home than at the office and they haven’t installed a format compatibility pack.
