Subject [jira] [Created] (TIKA-1092) Parsing of old Word file causes a TikaException
Date Tue, 12 Mar 2013 00:21:12 GMT
Giuseppe Totaro created TIKA-1092:

             Summary: Parsing of old Word file causes a TikaException
                 Key: TIKA-1092
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1092
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: parser
            Reporter: Giuseppe Totaro
            Priority: Minor

I found an issue with the parse method of org.apache.tika.parser.microsoft.OfficeParser. This
parser generates a Tika Exception when it try to parse very old file of Microsoft Word.

I think this issue is not a priority because the files that cause the exception belong to
an obsolete format/structure that even new Microsoft Office versions don't support them, but
it's important to know that something wrong about these outdated types can happen.

I report two links about old types (Microsoft support perspective):

For example, the message of TikaException is below:
