"OpenOffice Tips"


By default, OpenOffice saves your documents in the Open Document Format (.odt). Unfortunately Microsoft Office doesn't understand this format so you need to make a few tweaks to save the documents as Word Documents.


Option 1: When you save your document,

  • click File -> Save As, type the name of the document in the "File Name" field
  • in the "Save As Type" field click the dropdown box and select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP .doc".
  • If you are using Calc then select "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP .xls".


Option 2: Set the default so all documents are automatically saved as Microsoft formats.

  • Click Tools -> Options and select the plus next to Load/Save.
  • Then click on the General option.
  • On the right hand side you have the options for "Default File Format".
  • Select "Text Document" from the Document Type dropdown 
  • in the "Always Save As" dropdown select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP".

You will need to do this for "Spreadsheet" in the Document Format dropdown as well, except select "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP" for the "Always Save As".
