I have several of documents in Microsoft Word 2003 or later format. Few of them are opening using LibreOffice and few of them don't. They just open and immediately get closed. I tried changing their extensions to
.odt, but no luck.
My system is dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.10. I SFTPed a folder from remote drive to Ubuntu, which contained lots of Word documents. Then unzipped in the local folder. It's less likely if any mis-formatting would have happened during FTPing.
I am open to other Libre equivalent app which can open Word.
