Error open *.docx in Office 2003 with compatiablity pack varies

I had issue opening this particular file in WIN 7 (64BIT) with office 2003 SP3.
This gives me a message saying "There was an error opening this file."

However i have an older machine on WIN XP with office 2003 SP3, there is no problem in opening the docx file.

Both machine have the office compatibility pack installed.

I will keep looking.

Edit:
I wonder if the file has become corrupted in some way?
