Problem with a odt file to solve

Postby kirthgersen25 » Tue Feb 28, 2017 9:37 pm

Hi all, i have a problem with a file word odt. It seems when i open it, all the content of the file is filled woth character "#", and i lost all my work book on it.
Is there a method do save or regain the content? All previous passagges did non function, such as using zip or viewing xml, there's none of them or the zip file isn't recognized.
Also when i open the file, it don't compare the error somewehere, simply it will open the text filled with #.
I will post the file on hope you can savage something.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

See: [Tutorial] The Dreaded Pound Signs: file reduced to ####.
Good luck.

I hope you had backups.

See [Tutorial] How to find and un-delete Writer temporary files for instructions on how to find and un-delete the temporary files Writer wrote when you were editing the file. With luck you should get back much of your data.

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
