I been trying to convert my HTML file to MediaWiki format by exporting it using OpenOffice. I keep getting this error message though:

Error saving the document <filename>:
Write Error.
The file could not be written.

what directory are you trying to save it to? – John T Aug 25 '09 at 5:40
My desktop. – Lucas McCoy Aug 25 '09 at 5:43

Are you using the latest version of OpenOffice?

Does it require any addons/plugins to export to the mediawiki format?

Since I read a forum post where someone had the same problem and he updated everything where this function depends on and it solved his problem. Furthermore, it sounds like it's a known issue, have this only come up recently or did you never try it before?

Keep us posted!

I have OpenOffice 3.0. On Wikipedia it said that this feature has been supported since version 2.x (I can't remember the exact number). – Lucas McCoy Aug 26 '09 at 2:11
I never tried it before, but it does look like a know issue. I also tried performing this a root with no luck. – Lucas McCoy Aug 26 '09 at 2:16
I just tried it in Windows and it worked. Thanks! – Lucas McCoy Sep 13 '09 at 4:19
