I haven't seent his exact error, but I have found times where other weird 
errors occur in OO files saved in MS office formats.   I presume it is 
because the formats are not EXACTLY the same, even though MS Office has 
always been able to open it.

Since I have a copy of MS Office too on my Kids' computer, I occasionally have 
to open an offending file in MS Office, make a trivial change, then save it 
again in the "native" MS Office format.
