I have a XML file (which I can open with Excel) that Calc will not open. If I try to open with Calc, Writer starts up and opens the file instead. Does anyone have any ideas why this happens ?

Thanks.

I have this same problem and I'm even dealing with a file I created using Calc.

Whenever I try and open it, the file opens in Writer as a plain text document.

The links below only show that we are not alone!
OOO2 recognises the HTML content and opens it with the appropriate (it thinks) module: Writer.
