# Given I have a PC with LibreOffice 6.3 newly installed, how do I "download and open" (or whatever the terminology is) an e-mailed "Pages" document?opening pages

When I click on the e-mailed attachment (i.e., the document sent in "Pages" by a Mac-using client) in order to "download and open" it (so I can save it in my files), I get a pop-up window that says: "The file cannot be opened because there are problems with the contents." Then, when I click "OK," another pop-up emerges that reads: "Word found unreadable content in [name of file]. Do you want to recover the contents of the document?" When I click "Yes," the original pop-up arises again ("The file [name of file] cannot be opened because there are problems with the content."

I'm certain there are no photos, graphs, charts or illustrations in this document (it's simply text written on a Mac in "Pages" format)... but I'm too much of a novice to know what to do/how to use LibreOffice to get this document open.

Can anyone help me?
