RED HAT, OpenOffice - I need see all temp files...


People,

I have a problem with OpenOffice on Linux. Yesterday, I worked on a spreadsheet (open office) all changes were saved. Today, when I open the file, only I can see the first tab saved, and all information of the following tabs were not saved. How I recover all file complete?

so you saved it in a Microsoft format and clicked through the compatibility warnings and saved it as a xls( old MS format ) and not as a OO odf

you might have to just redo the work .

It's a shot in the dark, but, if you can find where OOo stores its temp files, then the file command might help you determine which files to inspect. See man file for details.

Here's a sample output:

Code:
~/docs$ file *
BCM_LQ.txt~:                  ASCII text, with very long lines
FS.odt:                       Microsoft OOXML
Move_bike_computer.odt:       OpenDocument Text
opasopus.com head page 1.doc: Composite Document File V2 Document, Little Endian, Os: Windows, Version 5.1, Code page: 1252, Author: amilius, Template: Normal, Last Saved By: amilius, Revision Number: 11, Name of Creating Application: Microsoft Word 10.0, Total Editing Time: 05:06:00, Create Time/Date: Sun Jul  8 23:05:00 2012, Last Saved Time/Date: Tue Jul 10 16:11:00 2012, Number of Pages: 1, Number of Words: 434, Number of Characters: 2480, Security: 0
