'The selected file is not a valid binary Word 97-2003 document' when Import Microsoft Word Documents
When using the Office Connector, importing Microsoft Word 2003 documents throw this error:
The selected file is not a valid binary Word 97-2003 document
There are two known causes:
- Confluence is running on IBM J9
- The document is created using OpenOffice Writer. Some features such as auto-numbering and table have been reportedly causing this problem.
