I have received a file from my colleague, but some part of the document doesn't appear in Writer. That part is ole attachment, and the source is not reachable. The contents of the attachment is in the file (I can recognize it in the source), MS Word and Google Docs display the document correctly, OO or LO Writer don't. What is the problem? Do I need to do something with the program settings or is this a bug?

I tried to attach a test document (it contains 4 tables, but in Writer the first 2 tables are not visible) but my "carma" is not enough for that :-( You can download the test document from here:

Thanks in advance!

Hello, do you know if there have been any further developments on this? I have a similar problem with V4.2.0.4

You need to report a bug here

LibO -

AOO (Writer) -

Register, describe situation and attach problem file

Problem with file really exists. Even WordPad shows 4 tables in document

If you do not want to report a bug (or you think that it will require a lot of effort on your part), I can (with your permission) do it for you
