It's pretty rare for a Doc file to completely refuse to open in LibreOffice.
Maybe, but I have one.
With DocX is slightly less rare. It's much more likely that the file is
corrupted or also has problems in other versions of MicroSquish Office or
even the same version of MSO on a different OS.
This file has never seen MSO, It has only been edited in L-O.
I tried opening it in Wordpad as part of diagnosis after L-O
failed to read it.
So, i guess the question is have you really tried opening the file on
another Windows box.
Until it started failing, this file lived on my Linux box and
was edited only with L-O. I have tested opening it with
Wordpad since the only Windows machine handy has
that. It has never been touched by MSO.
Next step is to try Abiword on the Linux machine. If
that does not work & nobody has a better idea, I'll
install MSO on the Windows box.
