I get the same error when I double-click a PDF file embedded in a word doc, using oowriter 2.0.2.

I get same error on several OOoWriter docs, on Linux. Docs were created with 1.1.5, now reopening them and trying to edit the embedded Calc tables, dbl-clicking on them, I get such error. 2.3.0 issues such warning on loading the docs, then the embedded tables look like images (that's what the small context pop-up toolbar says). In some case tables where C&C from Calc docs, in others from other tables embedded in other Writer docs. Docs format is .doc, since they should be exchanged with MS-O users. Looks like OLE code is subtly+badly broken, tons of work risk to end in the trash can :(. Is there any recovery/repair tool, to at least extract & save such OLE objects?
