    Your issue is off-topic in an MSDN forum. MSDN forums are for programming issues; your problem falls into the end-user category. The place to get further assistance is

    FWIW there's not going to be any simple/easy way to "convert" the character symbols that were generated using a non-Arabic font to the correct characters. Best you can hope to do is work with Find/Replace. Most likely, a forum that supports Arabic will be the better source of assistance than an English-language forum. People on an Arabic-language forum may already have experience in doing this kind of conversion.

  • Like Paul, I couldn't see anything strange about your document. You will have to clarify the problem for us... What are the specific symptoms?

  • Those characters may represent parts of symbols that were created by an old font. In the past, some custom font sets combined pairs of ASCII characters to create a third character. The only reliable way of recreating those would be to re-install the font concerned. In other words, it's not a damaged file - its just not using the right font.

  • Your document appears to have been created with a font that used pairs of ordinary characters to represent some arabic characters. This was common before Unicode fonts were widely available. To fix the file you need to re-install whatever font it was originally formatted with, and make sure that font is re-applied to the text.

  • The document indicates that it uses a font named Lotus. Is that font installed on your system? If not, try locating and installing it. Is Lotus the original font the document was formatted with? If not, you will need to re-open the original file and find out what font it used.
