Now I am going to answer the questions you want :
1-Which Open Office version is this?
the office is fozen, could you pls tell me from where I know the version.
When Open Office first starts up, a small picture shows the Logo, name and the version number.
eg. Mine shows a blue abstract picture, with a progress-bar across the bottom, and the logo: "OpenOffice.org 2.0".
Which documents (what type, where did you get them?)
type = .doc
I created my self it is my documents.
Did you create these documents using MS Word? Kedit?[quote]Have you ever been able to open documents in OO?
I have not used oo before. what is oo ?[quote]OO = "Open Office"
Have you tried just starting Open Office Writer by itself? (Without opening an existing document. Just click the Open Office writer icon.) What happens?
Are there formats it can open?
What formats have you tried?
At the moment, my telepathy is saying that you are trying to open a very large document.
also short documents can not be opened.
Not even plain text files?
What distribution are you using?
How did you obtain/install Open Office?
