LibreOffice File format error found at SAXParse

Postby pmulgaonkar » Fri Oct 14, 2016 12:50 am

I too have a corrupt file. Can someone tell me the way to recover as much as I can from the .docx ? I would rather not post the file to the forum.

Thanks.

Open the file using an archive utility (7-zip, winzip?) and examine the internal xml files using an xml editor. You will need to remove any xml tokens flagged as being in error and then rebuild the archive that is the docx file.
