I can see word and excel files on my XP machine across the network but when I double click them to open them with Open Office the Open Office splash screen is displayed but the files do not open. The same operation in PcLinux and the files open and are editable before resaving to the Windows XP drives. Can anyone suggest a solution please.
I've got the same problem, my band-aid solution is to copy the files back and forth - NOT very efficient!
