Hello when i try to save a invoice as *Microsoft excel* 2007/2010 document it changes it to this below. I have looked him up on Google Have called his number that does not work But when i type his info on google all i get is a bunch of his documents that you can open on line. I am wondering if his documents are some how messing up other people. It does not matter what computer i use it does the same thing. changes the info to his name address and telephone number. below is what it changes to :
Jonathan King 722 Moss Rd Kirkland WA 98033 206-555-3412

There are no "his documents", since he doesn't exist!

The 98033 ZIP code exists and is indeed for Kirkland, Washington (state), USA - but there appears to be no Moss Road in Kirkland. 206 is the area code for Seattle, Washington; Kirkland is the other side of Lake Washington and uses the area code 425 instead (though it probably used 206 in the past). The exchange code 555 is frequently used to create fictitious telephone numbers in the North American Numbering Plan area. Actually, only a hundred numbers in that range are reserved and these do not include 3412, but it is nevertheless very likely that this number was intended to be fictitious.

No-one except you is likely to be "messing up" any documents. You must have incorporated some example text, perhaps in the form of a sample database of addresses or of a template with the sample details included as placeholders.

Please let me know if you find a way to cause this problem to be fixed

This depends on where your document originated and what it is. If you have obtained an invoice template, each time you invoke it you will get a fresh copy of the sample text. If the data is meant to be yours, you will want to edit the template to include your own details; then each time you use it you will see your own address and telephone number. If this is meant to be your customer, you will obviously need to replace the sample text with your customer's actual details each time.

Don't blame "Jonathan King" and don't blame LibreOffice!

I trust this helps.
