Please help! I am new to OpenOffice. Using 4.1.3 Windows 10 I offered to help a friend on their computer. Typed a 5 pg. document - saved - computer crashed - now document text comes up as ######## - no words. Is there any way to retrieve the original? I am a senior, and not computer literate, so THANK YOU!

Read this tutorial and try what it says
[Tutorial] How to find and un-delete Writer temporary files

Your original file is damaged - experience shows there will be no usable content.
