I see from your site.xml file that the offending file is not found 
linked to from a site.xml folder. I therefore assume that it is linked 
to from another page.

Is the openOffice file you are working with called sample.sxw and is it 
located in the directory you indicate below? If not, then what makes you 
think it is the Open Office file that cannot be found?

[OT] I note the documents you are writing are named ADL, would that be 
Advanced Distributed Learning. If so, you may be interested in taking a 
look at the Burrokeet project at as it is 
working towards building a Forrest based ELearning solution.
