Problems with Word document Tables in 4.1.4 and 4.1.5

I often create tables in my odt test files to organize data. After upgrading to 4.1.4, I created some odt test filess with tables and saved them to a folder. When I opened the folder those files were not visible.
The plain text file was accessible but not the ons with tables. I was able to find the tables in a Windows search which showed them existing in the folder but not visible through Windows file manager. I was able to open some in the search view. But I cannot access them through the folder. As soon as I saved them and closed down, they disappeared again. One file with a table did save to the folder but when I tried to open it I got a pop-up for ASCII filter options. If I click ok- the file opens up all in hashmarks.
Thank you

1. Are you sure the files have the .odt qualifier after them? Try downloading test.odt and placing it in the folder.

2. If you open a file and you get the ASCII filter it means the file is a flat ASCII or .txt file. If you open what you think is a .odt file and you get the ASCII filter and the document is full of #####, it means the file is corrupted beyond repair and is full of NULL characters.
