Who knows the reason of this?

Today I wanted to send it to our customer, but it viewed a message: Project cannot recognize this file format. Do you want to open this file as text only? Now I don’t know what to do, I need to send it up to end of the week.

VictoriaGalobart,

It would help the community in resolving the message if you post the file that you are trying to open.

Re: Who knows the reason of this?

You may easily re-create a completely new file from the severely corrupted/bloated file:

  1. Open a new blank project file 
    2. Go to Insert/Project and insert the problem file.
    3. Select the first task, which will be the insertion point summary line.
    4. Go to Project/Task Information/Advanced tab.
    5. Uncheck the "Link to Project" button and hit "OK".
    6. If the file isn't already expanded, expand it.
    7. Select all tasks below the top-level summary line.
    8. Outdent the selected tasks.
    9. Delete the first task, which previously was a summary line.
    10. Save the resulting file.

Sometimes even the best methods can't work, then see microsoft project repair tool

Then Google is your friend or Yahoo.
