"#######" when loading saved .odt Writer file.

Welcome beginner. What is your question or comment?
Please try to briefly and clearly tell us: What you want, What you tried, and What happened.

When I try to load a saved .odt file into OfficeOrg 3.0 Writer I get the following text after being prompted with a 'ASCII Filter Options' window ...

#################################################################
#################################################################
#################################################################

... I've tried selecting different Character Sets but it's all the same result.

Has anyone else had a similar problem and how can I configure Writer to load text as it was saved?

What format did you use to save the document? A common error is trying to load a file exported as PDF, but this looks like a different file format.

hello :)

I saved it as a .odt file. I also tried saving it as a .doc file and I get the same results, just a page full of "###############" !

Weird.

try this.

Open writer, create a new text document, type something like 'hello openoffice.org", save the file as .odt and attach it here. Also see if you can open it.
