I remember having to do that for friends' Word documents. I don't know if it still happens, but apparently Word could save a file with a stated length different from its actual length, and when you tried to reload it it Word would throw the toys out of the pram. Open Office on the other hand would just load what was actually there, and re-write the correct length when re-saving.
