ODS file asks for text import then get ####

Postby jdgoodell » Fri Apr 05, 2013 5:29 am

I'm having the same problem. It asks for a text import then opens up blank or opens up a text document with nothing but ####'s. If someone could take a look at the file and let me know if there's any hope of recovering anything, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks,
Jon

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Sadly, quite nothing to do, see: 22 pages term paper replaced with pound signs.
Any power shortage for example? It's a common root cause of such problem.

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 .ods and cross your fingers.
AOO 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 19.10 and 4.1.5 on Windows 10 (with winPenPack port).
