Re: Unreadable File in Gnumeric

I posted a bug report about this, but I am wondering if anyone has had
this problem and knows of a work around.

I created a file, names, addresses, telephone numbers, that sort of
thing, and now it won't open. Gnumeric starts to read the file, but
crashes partway through the reading process...

You might try:

* copy the gnumeric file to (say) mydata.gz
* gunzip mydata.gz
* look at mydata in a text editor or pager and see what
  you've got.

This is on the basis that native gnumeric files are gzipped XML.
