Google didn't reveal many solutions and I did try "Open and Repair" solution but no joy

I found one with a different rid error bit it should work. Hopefully, this doesn't happen with every file-

1) Rename .docx file to .zip
2) Extract the files into it's own folder.
3) Look in the word\_rels folder for the file document.xml.rels

4) Open this file in notepad or your basic text editor of choice and search for your rID string.
5) In my case, the target bit in the example below was set to NULL
<Relationship Id="rId39" Type="" Target="media/image30.png"/>
6) To fix, put in a filename that exists in the media folder.

7) Save the file, ensuring the filename is the same as before (make sure notepad or your editor of choice doesn't mangle the filename by adding .txt to the end).

8) Zip up all the files and folders back into one file again.

9) Rename your .zip file back to .docx, open in Word and you should be sorted.
