Corrupt Ilutrator CS2 File

I have .AI File that when I try to open an error message appear.

Can't open the illustration. The Illustration does not have the correct number of operand for an operator
Offending operator "m".


Any idea?.

I can open the file placing in a fresh document, but the image has flatten, I need to have access to the vector, text, ect.

Check the name of your file to have alphanumerics. I remember somehting abotu a file with a comma in the name and an operand error came up. You can use dashes, underscores and quite a few other charchters, but just change the filename to x.ai and see if it opens.

We sued a similar technique to open CS2 files in CS1 of placing the ile in a new docuemnt Once it came up bitmapped, so we used expand and it fixed the logo.

There is a small chance expanding will work for your corrupted file, otherwise I think your file is in bad shape unless running a hard disk utility may fix some blocks on your drive that may be crosslinked.

File/Place the corrupted file into a new AI file. or..
Open the corrupted file with Acrobat and Save As: PDF or EPS or whichever.
