list of clothing which has been numbered, clientaccount

I have a shop with second hand clothing. This is a list with clothing which is numbered, sizes, colour and clientaccountnumbers. 

If you can extract any data you would be my saviour, now I don't know which clothing belongs to which person  :-(

Greetings from Holland,

good question, from time to time i have users with same 
problem (OO 3.2/XP), but still don't know the root cause.
sometimes it's possible to fix the "content.xml"
(open with a xml editor, add missing elements).

in that case the "content.xml" looks like the
saving process has been interrupted suddenly,
so adding the missing end elements will restore
parts of the data
