I am getting the message "Flash cannot parse this document" when I try to open a particular file. I am hoping that someone has a fix for this error... I just lost 3 days of work if it can't be fixed.
If someone from adobe can look at the file maybe they can tell me what is wrong with it?

Thanks Kim. Please install the Flash CS5 Updater. I believed we fixed this issue in that release.
1. Launch Flash.
2. Go to Help menu > Updates...
3. Make sure the box for Adobe Flash Pro CS5 is checked in the Adobe Application Manager dialog.
4. Click Update. You will probably be asked to quit Flash while the Updater is running.
You should be able to open the file without seeing the error.
