Which Open Office version is this?
Which documents (what type, where did you get them?)
Will anything else open the documents?
Have you ever been able to open documents in OO?
Will OO start a blank document OK? Will it save a new document (created by OO) OK? Can it open that document OK using file > open? .... by double-clicking the file icon?

Are there formats it can open?


At the moment, my telepathy is saying that you are trying to open a very large document. But it is not very relieble, so more information is needed. Thank you.

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".

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?

no
What formats have you tried?

Not even plain text files?

What distribution are you using?
How did you obtain/install Open Office?
