Help the helper to help you and provide information.

OS = ?. Lib.O version number = ?

Which steps to you take and what was the result of each step?

In which SW was this file created first?

What is the file format you try open? Is is docx-format?

What kind of operations did you make in LibO?

How does the file behave when you save it in odt-format?

A helper needs to understand all and often needs to make simulations to provide you with an answer.

Let me guess what your problem is. You created a document in LibreOffice and orignially saved it in ODT format. At this point it "worked fine." However, you used some features of the ODT standard that do not translate well to DOCX. So, you then saved as DOCX and reopened your file. At this point, when you opened the file, some of the formatting was messed up (document all scrambled up). If my guess proves correct, and you have the original ODT, try opening it to see if your formatting is still correct. If you want further assistance you will have to further define your problem.
