Hello ablackwel208

By spacing, do you mean a blank lines between footnotes?
  • In the document, Insert Footnote No 1 where you want it. You can use CTRL ALT F to do this and type the text of the footnote
  • Scroll back to the document you need Footnote No 2 and repeat as before.
  • Have a Print Preview to see the result.and exit from the PrintPreview
  • Now you need a blank line between the Footnotes 1 & 2. To do this go to the VIEW menu and click on Footnotes. Goto the end of the first footnote and press the ENTER key to get a blank line
Hope this is what you want. If it helped you please give a rating.
Have a good day

You can attempt a repair by opening Word, File>Open Select the document and then where it says "Open", click on the little arro next to it and choose "Open and Repair". If this does not work then it is corrupted beyond repair.

Hope that helps, pls rate the solution

If it says that all you can do is to open it without formatting or graphic, that's all you'll get. Document is corrupt and you won't be able to open it Sorry if you needed to recover it.
Just as a remote possibility, if document as made by you, look at recovery folder
C:\Documents and Settings\"your login\Program Data\Microsoft\Word

Uncle, you found a great workaround to fix this problem. If you would like a more permement solution, try the one below. I found this answer here: http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/136470-Word-2007-ERROR-quot-There-was-a-problem-sending-the-command-to-the-program-quot

It sounds as though the DDE setting for the .doc and/or .docx extensions are broken.

You might want to "re-register" Word's file extensions, which simply involves using the /r startup switch. This article provides more than anyone really needs to know: How to use startup command line switches to start Word 2010, Word 2007, Word 2003, Word 2002, and Word 2000. In brief:

Close Word
Start > Run > winword.exe /r {ENTER}

Does that fix it?

If you want to try manual surgery and are running Windows XP, you can view/edit the setting from Windows Explorer or My Computer: Tools > Folder Options > File Types tab > [appropriate extension] > select open then edit or modify. If you uncheck the "Use DDE" box and save, then the registry should be updated.

You mean the Word file has already been encrypted from opening or viewing? If so, I think you can get this MS Office password recovery utility to find the forgotten combination, it can automatically find your forgotten password for protected Office Word doc, Excel, PowerPoint etc. No matter the document is password protected to be opened or editing, it will help. May that helps. Blessing!

Since you would be "saving" a change to the document (being a revision), you may want to look into inserting a "Field" named "SaveDate" so it will hold the date the doc was saved.

Position your cursor where you'd like the date to be in your docuemnt, then: Insert > Field... > In Field names, select SaveDate, select a format and click <OK>.

Hope this helps!

Forgot word password?
Solving this problem by using software:
There are many 3rd party utilities which claim to recover forgotten word password:
The program that I recommend is the Word Password Recovery 5.0, It recovers/removes the "Password to Open" and "Password to Edit" for you to view and edit the document freely.

Tip:here is another software called office password recovery 5.0 which including not only Word Password Recovery 5.0 but also other programs that can recover excel password,access password as well.
