OTS file not opening

james mcauliffe
Hello


our OTS files are not opening, each time they try and convert to an OTD file and open in document rather than spreadsheet. Any idea why this is happening?


regards

James

OTS files are spreadsheet templates see the wiki page here
<https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/OOoAuthors_User_Manual/Getting_Started/File_formats>
and templates are never opened but rather used to created a new
document with the properties of the template. If the template itself was
used you basically overwrite the template.

The first thing come into my mind is that some user (maybe you) have
given the file the wrong extension.

Thanks Martin,

I had a number of emails with Brian. I meant ODS file, unfortunately my file is corrupted and I did not have automatic backup on in my settings so have lost the file.
