XML problem and Corrupted Word Document '' Parsing error '' RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to xml. I have a corrupt Word 2016 document. This is what I have done so far

    Change .Docx to .zip

    Opened .zip, extracted and saved  Document.xml

    Opened .xml file in Notepad++

    Used plugin for xml and formatted contents with xml tools Pretty Print (xml only with line breaks)

    Checked the xml and I get the following error "xml parsing error at line 28201-premature end of data in tag document line 2"

    The code on that line is the last bit of code </w:document> which looks correct (to a newbie like me) and it does have a corresponding start tag.

    Can anyone give me an idea of what could be behind the "premature end of data error"? and please i need your support urgent as i have to submit the assignment after 2 days.. plz urgent 

    Thanks!
