Error opening Project 2007 file after using project 2010

This is the second time I'm experiencing this problem.

Created a file (say Rev 1) in Project 2007 at work and took it home and updated it using Project 2010. When I finished updating using Project 2010, I saved the file in Project 2007 format. Came to work the next day, opened the file using Project 2007 and did a "Save As" so that I have another revision of the file (Rev 2).

After updating Rev 2 in Project 2007 I closed it but when I came to work the next day I couldn't open Rev 2 file again either in Project 2007 or 2010. This has happened to me with 2 different files.

The error message I get is

An unexpected error occured during command execution.

Try the following:
  • Verify that all argumen names and values are correct and are of the correct type.
  • You may have run out of memory. To free up available memory, close programs, projects, or windows that you aren't using.

It seems to me that it has to do something with invalid characters in the file name of the timeline. Or it could be anything from an '&' to two concurrent spaces, mulitple '.' or even a dash (-). Stick with single spaces, letter and number combinations and you should be fine. The problems arise based on how the file has been opened.

I tried changing the file name to something very simple and still no luck in opening the file.
