How can I create a new document after form submission?

I have a content type with a standard 'dotx' template file associated with it, and this content type is applied to a document library.  It is the only content type on that document library.  I have a LIST which users will enter information, and upon submission, a workflow is called with a single module: "Create list item".  This module is pointed to the document library (and associated content type).  Now, when the user saves their LIST item, the workflow is launched and a new item is created in the document LIBRARY.  I can see the word document is created, and the workflow completes successfully.  The properties of the newly created document I can also view (and edit) but the actual document will not open.

The problem is, the document cannot be opened at all.  When attempting to open the document, I receive the following error in Word:

"The file text.docx cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents."


No error detail available.

Has anyone experienced this before?  This is my first foray into creating documents dynamically.

Re: How can I create a new document after form submission?

Not using this method, but similar, when I uploaded blank documents to a library that were autogenerated I received the same error. My fix was to use a document template that had some kind of body text in the document instead of a blank one.
