  • Here is the solution to open ODT (openoffice.org text) files in Microsoft Word :
    1. Office 2007
    2. Install Service Pack 1 for Office 2007.
    3. Install Sun ODF Plugin for Microsoft Office.
    4. Open ODT document via File > Open, or by double-clicking the ODT file and when prompted for the application to open it with, choose Word.

  • Simplest way would be to reinstall OpenOffice and save your documents in Word/Excel/Powerpoint/etc format. It's an available option in the 'Save As' dialog for OpenOffice programs.

  • The best way to do it is just install Open Office again since it's free anyway. Then just do this for every file you want to open in Microsoft Office:
    1. Open the file in Open Office
    2. Click File, then "Save As"
    3. Change the file type from a .odt to a .doc (odt is the Open Office format, doc is the Microsoft format)
    4. Click Save
    When asked to keep current format or keep Open Office format, you want to keep the current format.
    Once you save it with the file extension .doc then Microsoft Office should open it.

  • Reinstall your openoffice.
    1. Open your OpenOffice document.
    2. Click the "File" menu and select the "Save As" option.
    3. Select a location to save your file and give it a name.
    4. Click the "Save as Type" drop-down menu and select the Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx). Leave the "Auto Extension" option checked.
    5. Click the "Save" button.
    6. Click the "Keep Current Format" button when the window warning you of formatting issues comes up.
