I am working on a project in SDL Trados 2009 with 13 RTF files, and everything has been working fine. I received an additional RTF file.

I don't know how to add that document to the project, so I tried to open it in the Edit view in the same way I usually open single documents.

This time I got the following error message after setting the languages and adding the TM:

"Error when pre-tweaking file: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation."

I don't know how to proceed.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The problem seems to be only with this particular file Jul 29, 2012

I tried opening a random document on my computer with the same source French, target English, and the same TM, and it opened fine.

I tried copying the RTF file that won't open to another folder in my documents, I got the same error message again.

I tried "save as" with the RTF file moving it again to yet a different folder, I got the same error message.

Try saving it as DOCX, just in case Studio likes it better.

did a messy work around but would like something better Jul 31, 2012

Thanks for replying Dominique. I invented my own overly messy work around before you replied.

I still would like to know why Trados rejected that file since it accepted 12 other .rtf files from the same clilent.

It would be good to know in case the same thing happens again.
