Pop up box blocking or clearing data from .xls file

Postby Frank de Blok » Mon Nov 30, 2020 7:35 am

ASCII Filter Option window pops up when opening a text file that I worked on yesteday. The illustrated text file opens as roughly 1200 pages of ####################
I want to open my file as it was before closing....
Two other files that I also closed yesterday open in the normal way

WHAT COULD I DO TO RESTORE?

OpenOffice 4.1.7 under windows 7 old ASUS laptop computer

Thanks,
Frank

Please read the Survival Guide for the forum.
Don't post in an old topic (2016) that has nothing to do with your issue. I've not bothered changing your topic title.

See: [Tutorial] The Dreaded Pound Signs: file reduced to ####.
Your file is lost. I hope you had backups.
LibreOffice 7.0.3 on Xubuntu 20.10 and LibreOffice 7.0 (portable) on Windows 10.
