[Solved] Recovering a corrupted LibreOffice Writer File

Postby ianbru » Mon Mar 26, 2018 12:53 pm

Hi

I'm running Libre Office Version: 5.2.3.3 on Windows 10 and on a work file I'm getting message:

File format error found at
SAXParseException: '[word/document.xml line 2]: Attribute w:eastAsiaTheme redefined
', Stream 'word/document.xml', Line 2, Column 104268(row,col).

Document fails to load whatever I do - worked fine yesterday.

Can anyone help?

Many Thanks
Ian

G'day, and welcome to the community forum.

[Tutorial] Format error discovered in sub-document will give you instructions on how to repair the problem yourself; if you are not confident that you can undertake the repair, upload the document and someone will attempt the repair for you.

[Forum] How to attach a document here Note maximum file size is 128K. If your file is larger, use a file sharing site such as Mediafire and post the link here.

Hi Thanks for such a quick reply - I'm afraid I'm not technical at all so I've posted a link for the file here from Mediafire if someone could help correct the file that would be great been working on it for a week.

I have sent you a PM

 Edit: I've sent a hopefully repaired version of your document; I'd strongly suggest you save your document in native ODF format - .odt - and only save in a foreign format when you need to send it to someone who can't read ODF files. I understand the MS Office from around 2007 can read ODF.

See [Tutorial] Differences between Writer and MS Word files for why you should always work in and save files as .odt.
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
