I have an error in a spreadsheet on opening.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Format error discovered in the file in sub-document content.xml
at 2,734592(row,col).



Can you open or create a new spreadsheet in Calc? You might have a corrupted file. However the ods file can be unzipped and you can open the xml file inside to text editor.

Thanks for the answer Jay.

I have tried some suggestions found by Googling.

1. I copied the file to a new folder and renames it from .sxc to .zip.
2. I extracted the files within.
3. The content.xml file is big - over 4mb. I tried opening it with gedit and notepad without success. 4. Opened the file in Windows with notepad and got a mass of text - 4049 lines and 1070 columns.

I guess this means I can edit the text, but what do I edit?
You can try saving the text file as either txt or csv which you can import into Calc. You will lose any formulas in the original file

Thanks, Theo
