I recently upgraded a machine here and on it I had a spreadsheet (v. important) made in openoffice 1.0, I have tried to open it with the same office (which won't) and  the latest office(I get ASCII).  Can anyone tell me how to read or convert this doc so it can be read.

hi mbpssgms
what is the file format (and extension) and version number of your latest office ? Are you able to open other documents as normal ?

CC Sunny.

Give us as exact versions as possible, and perhaps
file <the file>
ls -l <the file>
output.

Was the file saved in the OO generic format or in M$ .xls format?

If your table dont use any special function of Open Office find a machine with OO 1.0 and export with CVS and load into your machine.
Another solution is search for changelog of the XML DTD between version 1.0 and 1.1 and fix with your hand :)
It is important to remember that OO use a targzed file.
