    Have you tried opening with an Audit?

    If audit doesn't work I believe that is a corrupt file to be sent to Autodesk...

      I think this means you may have an insufficient memory problem? Saw this back in Windows XP 32 bit days when files got too large.

      How big is the file? How much RAM on the machine?

              Have you tried restarting Revit?

                "Past it's end" errors typically mean the file is toast. You can try sending it to support and there is a chance they can recover it, but I would start looking at a back up just in case.

                  thanks, fortunately the file is an Architectural model received on a CD today for a new project that I'm starting. I'll just request a new file...

                    So then "past it's end" is Autodesk's way of saying the file has "passed on"?
