You have given us no information to work with.

What format is the document in? What did you create it with? What windows version do you have?

We can only work with the information you give us.

Did you delete that assignment or something?
You can recover your files using Recuva, a free recovery tool that finds your deleted files.
If you deleted your assignment like a very long time ago (couple of months or years), then probably it can't be recovered

If not because of being deleted, have a look at this google search result:

No, actually I did not delete the file, it is still here with me. The problem I have with it is that I cannot open it. Regarding its format, it is a mirosoft word(2003) document. Thank you for your help...
Regards

Often you can crack open a corrupted Word document using Notepad. Simply open Notepad and drag the respective file into the open window. It will be minus any formatting, but will at least give you what ever you've written, which can then be cut-and-pasted into a new Word document and cleaned up from there

Where does this document reside?? Does this document reside on your local drive C:, Network, or Outlook?

Is this an actually a word doc? Is the file extension .doc or docx? If the file extension is not of this format, its not a word doc..

That is actually incorrect. Have found on occaision that downloading an attached document from email (wife has often had this issue with Gmail), where the file extension is either lopped or altered... is still a Word doc despite the extension change. Even if corrupted (ie, the XML metadata within the container corrupted), opening in Notepad will still allow access to the raw document information.
