Description maxqnz 2004-05-23 11:01:32 UTC
I have just installed Ooo 1.1.2rc2, and have discovered that something has
changed in the way it saves files to Word 97/2000/XP format. In Ooo
1.1.1, I could save files in Word 97/2000/XP format and then open them
in WordPerfect 12 without any difficulties. Now, though, if I save a
file in that format from inside Ooo 1.1.2, WP12 reports the file as an
“unknown format†and can’t open it. Can any other WordPerfect users
confirm this problem?

Well, I cannot reach the mentioned file on the server, but I do not think, that
this is a problem of OO export function. The files can be opened by MS Word (the
reference), Word viewer and OO itself. Thus the problem is more in WP 12 I'm sure...
