Subject: Retriving old files

I received some old document files on  31/2 inch floppy disks.  I was able to download and
save them to my hard drive.  The files are saved in Open Office 1.1.  When I tried to open
them, a window popped up "ASCII Filter options".  I just clicked enter and the document came
up completely scrambled.  Is there a way to retrieve these documents?  These are old church
records and I would really like to be able to save them onto a DVD or flash drive to preserve
 I would appreciate any help you can give me.  Thank you

Roberta Doebert
