Sometimes my work colleague sends me a file without the extension (from a mac) and LO does this to me, I just rename the file with .doc on the end. Do your Word documents have .doc extension on the file name.

I use a MacMini, running Lion. I upgraded from Snow Leopard, with which I could read/write Word2004 
documents. Lion won't let me do that. I do not want to purchase MicrosoftOffice 2011, so i've 
downloaded LibreOffice3. (3.3.3)

I won't go into detail with other conversion problems. The main one is when a document is listed as a LibreOpen Document&  
I try to open it w/ LibreOffice3, I get a window, "ASCII Filter Options." I click ok,&  get a document filled w/ 
# signs, among others. This seems to be a problem on other websites involving the "ASCII Filter Options" issue, but 
none of the topics relate to Word2004. It's always about Word2003 or Word2007.

What can I do to solve this problem? Or, can I NOT do anything to solve it? Would appreciate any 
advice or links you can give me.
