Help with word/pdf document

Hi

I received an ebook which showed the MS Word icon but has .pdf after it. Nothing seems to open it. I have downloaded Open Office 3.1 but to be honest, I'm not sure what I am starting with in order to convert it!! Is there a way I can analyse the document so I can see exactly what it is?

Many thanks.

Sue

Try changing the postfix to .doc, .docx, or .rtf and see if it works in OO3.1. If that doesn't work, open with notepad and see if the header info is in plain text. Other than that, you'll need an expert.

Thanks Jack

I think the problem is an incomplete file.
