Trados keeps telling me the word document is not a word document!

I'm sure there's a perfectly good explanation, but Trados won't clean up or analyse a file because it's not Word document (when it is!). I've tried re-saving it as a 1997-2003 version, and changing it's name: .doc, .docx etc. But it still doesn't want to do it (very frustratingly!!). Never had this problem before.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

David

Have you tried changing it to a .rtf file?
Is there anything special in the file, such as html codes etc?

Yes, thank you. That's done the trick.
