My husband has been working on a spreadsheet for over a month when last night
our laptop was unplugged. The battery is busted and the only way to keep the
laptop on is to have it plugged in. When he booted the laptop back up he was
prompted to recover the file and the recovery failed.He is them prompted to
choose an ACSII Filter option. When he chooses the option he gets a window
that says "Document file 'name%20name.ods' is locked for editing by Unknown
User Open document read-only or open a copy of document for editing."

Each option opens a word document with this for 3 pages:

oor:name="SoftClose" oor:op="fuse"><value>false</value></prop></item><item
oor:name="Style" oor:op="fuse"><value>0</value></prop></item><item

The file had been saved many times before, is there a way I can either save
this file or open a past save? This is an ancient laptop (MacOS 10.4.11) so
alot of downloads wont work for it. If I can email the file to an up to date
laptop then I could save it. Can anyone help me? My husband is really upset
about losing this file and is already battling depression and this does not
need to be another thing on his list to be upset about.

Thanks for everyone help!
