I am proofreading a 30,000 word document using "Track changes" and it was all going fine, until I get to the last 10 pages and suddenly all the tables start going absolutely mayhem, and I get a message saying that one of the tables is corrupted (no idea which one), and that I should do "open and repair". I did that, and all that happened was the next time i opened the document, it was 500 pages long instead of 120 because word had put everything into one tiny thin column down the left hand side. Despairing because deadline tomorrow morning

I've managed to save the first 20 pages using copy and paste into a new file, but the rest keeps flickering so fast and repaginating itself, that I can't seem to save my work! Does anyone have any tips? Is it because I am using "track changes"? Because of the large volume of text? Any advice would be very welcome if anyone has been in a similar situation... If I could press a magic button that would make my christmas!!
thanks in advance,...

Sarah
