You made a backup? If yes, then:
Start MSWord.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open.
Locate the folder in which you last saved the missing file.
In the Files of type list, click All Files. The backup file usually has the name "Backup of" followed by the name of the missing file.
Click the backup file, and then click Open.
 
Otherwise it is necessary to try only this way:

Hey guys !
 
When I attempt to open a word document, I get a error message :
 
Word failed reading from this file. Please restore the network connection or replace floppy disk and retry.
 
I'm left with 2 options - retry and cancel.
 
I see my text in teh background, however I can't access it because the popup box is in the way. 
 
I'm running it off a local hard drive.
 
Does anyone know how I can repair this ? It's a very important document.
 
Thanks.

Try opening it with OpenOffice or LibreOffice, both are free downloads. I've found that MS Word sometimes gets... flaky.

What is probably happening is that somehow, there was an attempt to save that file (or the temporal version) in either a floppy drive or a network location that is not present anymore. Restoring those will get rid of the alert box.

 

If you can't, usually the fastest way, if you are the fastest clicker in the west, is to place the mouse over the close file dialog and get out of the alert box with the <ESC> key. As soon as you hit <ESC> click on close.

If none of those are possible you'll have to erase the program's recent files story... that might be in the registry or whenever the program uses to store it...
