Description shmuelh 2007-11-11 06:18:34 UTC
I am attaching 3 files: a) Hagadah1.wpd b) Hagadah1.doc c) Hagadah1a.doc Hagadah 1.wpd was created about 15 years ago, using WordPerfect 4.2. I imported it into WordPerfect 11, and Saved it as a Word document (Hagadah1.doc). When trying to open this into OO 2.3.0, it bombed totally. I then opened Hagadah1.doc into MS Word (2003?), where it opened with no problems. When I then Saved it from MS Word as a Word document (Hagadah1a.doc), OO had no problem opening it. Note that all the "slash-letter" combinations were used for formatting in those prehistoric times. I also tried this with other files, with the same problem.

shmuelh, bot of your .doc files open just fine using build 2.4m242. Resolving as fixed.

Trying to open "HAGADAH1.doc"`I get crash and recovery loop. Note that if it does not crash, try opening second attached .doc. This is rare occasion when crash reporter invokes. Crash IDs are r3xk99, rrxk99, rn4k99, rr4k99, rqyk99. Setting keyword, priority. shmuelh, thatnks for your report.
