I know I'm probably in over my head here so I will apologise for my stupidity on this subject right now. Anyways, after running SmartFTP and logging into my site I tried editing a portion of my site and it took me to Word. I made the small change and after uploading it I noticed that the website page I had edited was now messed up. Was I suppose to edit the page in dreamweaver or something else? Thanks for any help, its much appreciated.
The basic structure of Internet pages has to be written in html or a variant such as XML. You do not have to produce these in Dreamweaver - you can use Notepad, for instance - but they still hav to conform to a basic structure based on html.
Word is used for documents to be printed. While you can export Word files in an html format, it's terrible, bloated code and will not validate.
All I can suggest now is to download the page which no longer works, open it in a code editor (DW is great but there are also many free editors available), extract the content, write a new valid html page using that content, then re-upload it. Leave Word entirely out of the process.
