This file is opened in LibO on Windows XP without any problems. I see no any error message. Document contains 12 pages.

Could open the file with LO on Win 7 Home 64-bit wirh no problems at all. Maybe Mac related?

Just to know if the file has been saved incorrectly: Does the file size suggest that there is data inside the file?
