Hi :(
Sorry about that!  I just tried opening the file here but it would
open.  Then i renamed the file-ending from .odt to .zip but that
wouldn't open.  I tried changing it to .docX on a whim but without MS
Office that was never going to be any different so i don't know why i
even tried it!

I tried opening with GEdit (= a lot like Notepad) but the 1st 2
letters were not PK and then i checked a different Odt that someone
else sent me earlier and that did start with PK.  I'm not convinced
about the whole PK thing but it's interesting

All Zip files start with "PK", so the fact this file doesn't indicates that it's not a valid zip file (and therefore not a valid ODT file).

I didn't yet try finding some tool for fixing zip files.  it might be
worth testing on a copy of a couple of files.  There might be an odt
fixing tool around the internet somewhere too.
Apols and regards from
Tom :)
