Hi,

I recently wrote several documents in Pages. I then saved them as a ".doc" on "Dropbox". I need to open them in word on a non-Mac PC but the problem is I am unable to. I downloaded a free trial of word 2012 on my non- Mac PC but still no luck in opening the documents.

I have tried emailing myself the documents from Dropbox but they won't open in my email.

I no longer have access to the documents on the Mac. The error message on the non Mac PC says something about the content is preventing the documents from being opened. I invested 40 hours of time writing these documents so am desperate to get them open.

Any solutions?

Thank you
QUOTE Thanks

Can you provide the specific error message? It's possible that the files were corrupted. Is there anyway you can get the original Pages file back?
