Hi, I've exactly the same problem. The file seems to be corrupt, I´ve attached the file if somebody please could try to help me.
It´s my daughters schoolwork that she has been working with for some weeks (12 pages). The laptop (New Acer) did upgrade to Windows 8.1 and OpenOffice wanted her to rewrite her name, after that the file were corrupt. She says that she didn´t have turned off the laptop during the saving of the file, is there something to do?

Thanks!

Unfortunately the file is totally corrupt. See http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/ ... =6&t=17677. Hopefully there is a backup copy. Check the user profile https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/v ... 74&t=12426 for filename.bak.

You can also check the temporary folder of the system (see in OO Tools>Options>OO>Paths). If there are folders like sgmlf.tmp with a file having the same name inside, make a copy of that file, rename it in .odt and cross your fingers.

Good luck!
