Apache Open Office problem, “locked out” of file

  camilla11 13:07 08 Jun 2017

Hi, I hope someone can help me please. I have a database file created with Apache Open Office that I can no longer open. I think I mustn't have shut it down properly the night before. When I try to open it, I am faced with a "Text Import" window and I don't know how to get around it. I can open other files and create new ones ok. Please can anyone help?

No Backup or old copy of the file available

Yes, but it's six months old. Done a lot with it since :-(
