Please add detailed description of problems in exported file. It could help to correct them by interested developer. If there are many issues please file separate file reports. General rule is 1 bug = 1 report.

As is self explanatory in the bug title just open the testcase in the referenced word version and you'll see the problem

Please describe it as "file going mad" is not self explanatory. Bugzilla has search interface to check comments content, so bugs have to be described. Your problems could be duplicates of other well known issues. Also what one see using own system/build could not be the same what the reporter see using different system/build.

The is a testcase. Open the tescase in word 2007.
Comment 9 Urmas 2014-02-09 07:13:35 UTC
As far as I can guess the exported document triggers endless repagination in Microsoft Word.

Opened testcase.odt in LO6.0dev and saved as .doc. Opened in MSO2013 after a brief delay.

Word2007 is end of life within a month. Opens without going mad in more recent versions. Closing as WONTFIX.
