Hi, I have an RTF file that opens blank in Word 2007 and 2010. It opens fine in wordpad and Word 2003. How can I open this in 2007? Thank you

Thanks for your response, for 2007 yes there is a SP but not for 2010. If I save it as a doc it still opens blank in both 07 & 10. I am able to open it with wordpad, copy it and paste it in word then save it...
