dropped pages when saving docx as a doc



I save a docx file (Word 2007) as a doc file (Word 2003). The save looks ok.
But when I open the doc file using Word 2007, several pages have been
dropped. If I repair the doc file, the pages are recovered. What causes this
problem, and how do I fix it?

Is part of the document in a table? If so, take a look at the Table
Properties and make sure the Text Wrapping is set to "None".

If that's not it, when Word repairs the document what does it indicate it

The normal template seems to be working in Word 2007. If it is corrupted, how
do I repair or replace it. Also, should I replace or repair the the add-in
template that I use for the document?

I'm not sure if it is a problem with only this document. I will experiment
with other documents to see if it is a wide-spread problem.


Text wrapping is set to None.

When repaired it simply appends (repaired) to the file name. No other
information is available.


I followed the instructions. No improvement. I can send you the document if
you wish.
