Description jmichae3 2008-10-17 05:35:24 UTC
Office 2003 compatibility took a dive in OOo 3.0.0. 

I tried writer. The XML format is broken. Writer refuses to export to this
format and gives an error.

Nor will OOo system tray applet open a complicated document embedded objects I
made with Office 2003.

here is a file with embedded objects.

this file is 1.6MB. on a 2.8GHz machine with 3GB ram, once you start loading it,
it never finishes.  the progress bar stays right in the middle.

This requires OOo3.0.0 and Office 2003 (uses Word, Excel, Equation editor), has
1 embedded picture.

MRU->SUS: export of attached odt to Word 2003 XML will result in "Error saving
document". Looks like this is a fact that the document contains some OLE's and a
graphic. Exporting one OLe does not lead to the error.

Changed target to "OOo please help" as the Office 2003 filters are no longer
maintained by myself. My priority has shifted to the ODFDOM project and even MS
is working now on OOXML instead of those XML 2003 formats, therefore Sun has
been implemented and is now supporting the OOXML import filter with OOo 3.0.

Kind regards,
