It gives me this message "File format error found at 666,7(row,col)." I just saved the document and then tried to open it and it wont let me. I do not want to have to start this document over again.

This is a good example of why it's important to keep backups. Anyway, the best chance is to unzip it, as explained in the link at https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questi....

I tried reading that tutorial at that link but I don't quite understand how to do it. Could you explain it to me?
