Error message opening a document in Word "Word cannot open this file because it is larger than 512 M
Default Error message opening a document in Word "Word cannot open this file because it is larger than 512 M

We had generated a word file using asp.net, c# and openxml which contains text and images (.tiff) and having file size more than 512 MB. File created successfully but when we tried to open it with Office 2013 it show error as "Error message opening a document in Word "Word cannot open this file because it is larger than 512 Megabytes". Also checked with the http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2599449 link but we can not remove any image file as it is having reference in file.



How could we open file having size more than 512 MB in word 2013, as the content of files need to be have in single document only. We do not want to split document in multiple.

You are going to have to split it, or recreate it using linked rather than embedded graphics. Once you hit the capacity ceiling it's game over.

To open the file in Word, you will need to reduce its size. You can do that by deleting some of the images files and/or reducing the size of the embedded image files. To have such a large file probably means you've inserted many images that have far higher resolution than is necessary and/or you've unnecessarily retained cropped data.
