Jon, *

I can't identify any issues with the OOXML  .DOCX  you posted:

It opens in LibreOffice 
Version: (x64)
Build ID: 37b43f919e4de5eeaca9b9755ed688758a8251fe
Locale: en-US (en_US)

It also opens in MS Word 2013 (15.0.4753-1000) 32-bit from MS Office 2013 Professional Plus without 

Further to Tom's comments--the OOXML formats between MS Office versions change. The 2007 
implementation is probably less "stable" than the current 2013.

Better practice would be to *not* work in OOXML and instead retain the document for editing in 
native LibreOffice ODF 1.2, i.e. as a .ODT.  Only convert to OOXML .docx, or better PDF 1.4, for 
exchange with non-LibreOffice users when necessary.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Is this a corrupt document? Why?

I am having trouble understanding why the attached document is corrupted on
Microsoft Word 2007 and on LibreOffice at times.  I have since then updated
to the latest version, however opening this document resulted in a lot of
warnings indicating that the document is corrupt.  I also noted that I was
unable to edit the flowchart, even though LibreOffice Writer provides the
user control.

I am using two PCs:
One has Microsoft Windows 8 and Microsoft Office 2007 Professional
One has Microsoft Windows Server 2007 SP2 and runs LibreOffice

I edited it with both Microsoft Word 2007 and LibreOffice Writer.
I am informed that attachments are removed and these have been uploaded to
