Thanks for answering so promptly. However the link you gave doesn't actually address the problem I put. My documents are text only - no pictures or anything in them. If I have created my documents myself then depending on how I save them (odt or doc/docx) the file size is wildly different, odt being typically twice the size of doc/docx files. And finally the size is consistent, that is if I start with a doc file, edit it and resave as a doc file the size remains broadly the same. Similarly with odt file. If I start with an odt file and save as a doc/docx file the size shrinks and conversely if I start with a doc/docx file and save as odt the size bloats.
