I saved my file, shutdown my computer, and now it's broken!!
First OpenOffice told me to delete a .dll file somewhere, and then it keeps asking me to choose an ASCII- filter!
All I can see is 96 pages of # .... my document was 9 pages !!!

Can anyone please help me retrive ta file, or is it completely broken ?!

Thanks in advance !

Sadly, quite nothing to do, see: 22 pages term paper replaced with pound signs.

Check the temporary folder of the system (see in OOo Tools>Options>OOo>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.

I think there are less reports about such problems, upgrading to AOO 3.4.1 may help.
