.doc/.xls files written in OpenOffice won't open in Libre Office

I’ve got several files written in Open Office back in 2009 stored on a memory stick, including my CV. They were originally saved as .doc/.docx and /xls files. I was using the latest version of Ubuntu and OO at the time. I’m now using Fedora 16 and the latest version of Libre Office. When I try to open any of the files, Libre Writer/Calc tries to open, but stops after about 10 seconds. I have other files stored as well - mp3s,jpegs etc - which open OK, so I don’t think there’s a problem with the memory stick. Anyone got any ideas?

You need to report a bug here

LibO - https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=LibreOffice&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED

Register, describe situation and attach problem file

Also important whether Apache Open Office open these files? Download latest version of AOO Apache OpenOffice - Official Download and try. If problem is present in Apache Open Office, report it here https://issues.apache.org/ooo/enter_bug.cgi

Cheers for that. I’ll give it a go and let you know how it goes.
