Subject Fw: Question relating to a problem in Open Office

Check the folder the file is in. Normally you will find the same file name with a prefix of
~ added. the other file name is how Open office knows it was being edited. You have 2 choices:
1) Open the file with the ~ prefix – this should contain some of the changes made during
the last edit session. 2) Delete  the ~ prefix file. This loses all your changes but takes
away locked for editing message.

Subject: Question relating to a problem in Open Office
Would like to ask a question relating to a problem faced by me in Open Office.

Whilst working in a text document in Open Office, power trip forced the computerto shut down.
On opening the document in which I was working the following message pops up
Document Locked for Editing 

Question : How to remove this feature - Locked for Editing?
