Error converting thousands of documents with LibreOffice

0 down vote favorite You can't vote for your own post. (click on this box to dismiss)

I am trying to convert several thousand documents from LWP (Lotus Word Pro) to DOC. When the converting process gets to around 229 documents converted it just quits.

The terminal lines I am using to convert this are:

soffice --headless --convert-to doc --outdir /home/cyrex/work/biopsias/2007 *.lwp

or

libreoffice --headless --convert-to doc --outdir /home/cyrex/work/biopsias/2007 *.lwp

both work but up to 229. I have 60K documents to convert I doing them 200 at a time would take A LOT of time.

Converting them to ODT also has the same problem.

I have LibreOffice version 3.5 in Ubuntu 12.04
