I was working on the document on my old XP machine using an old version of MS word.
I moved it to my new machine, Windows 8, with LibreOffice and loaded it okay, then added several portions and saved the file. It was quite big - about 200 pages of text. It was in rich text format when I loaded it, and when I saved it as I was adding information.
Then I saved the file, which was and is on a USB stick. LibreOffice can’t open it, giving the message: File format eror round at 6520,7 (row, col).
I tried to reopen it on the first (XP) computer and MS Word can’t read it.
I would really like to salvage as much of the document as possible. Can anyone please suggest a file repair program that might help, or any other tool that might able me to rescue most of my work.
