Whenever I save LibreOffice documents as .doc, .xls, .docx, .xlsx (these are the only ones I’ve tried), Microsoft Office 2007/2010 can’t open them. They are seen as corrupted document files and I’m asked by MS Office to use its open-and-repair function, which fails nonetheless. In fact, MS Office is able to repair and open .odt and .ods documents, unlike its aforementioned seemingly native formats.
If I may, what’s the point of being able to “Save as…” if the respective formats can’t be read by their native suites (i.e., MS Word, MS Excel etc.)?
I’m currently using the latest LibreOffice (v 18.104.22.168) in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I’ve tried this on multiple Ubuntu (11.10/12.04) and Windows (7) computers.
Thanks for the help, in advance.
