"max element depth constraint violated" in Word 2013 from a document created in Word 2010

This is the solution by Doug Robbins that worked for me.

"Another thing that you might try on a copy of the document is to change the extension to .zip and the open the archive and delete the WebSettings.xml file from the archive.  Others have reported that has overcome problems with documents."

Rename file extension to .zip.  Open find the WebSettings.xml in one of the subdirectories.  Delete.  Close.  Rename extension back to .docx.  Open in Word as normal

I'm filing it here for my own personal quick reference.  He suggested some other options.  See the original link.
