  1. Outside TMG I have been happily using Open Office for a few years now and am now on OO v3.3. I have now installed TMG8 with its capability of producing reports in Win7 64-bit and started preparing printed reports again. Some DOC reports open OK in OO Writer 3.3, some crash OO. I don't remember having had DOC files crash OO before. If I take the DOC reports that have crashed in OO round to a neighbour and open them in Word 2002 and then save them again they now open OK in OO. I could go through all TMG's possible permutations of report and configurations to find just what combinations work and what don't. Of course it would always be quicker to take them round to my neighbour but there is a limit to how much one can take advantage of a neighbour's kindness <g>. Or I could fork out for MS Office, which means going up the MS Word learning curve all over again when I am now comfortable with OO. OO has been very effective and stable with all files except for some of TMG's DOC reports. Has anyone else had the same problem? Better still, has anyone got a solution?
