Default How can I open an "openoffice" ".odt" file in Word 2003

I have Office 2003 at home, and I am given Openoffice at work. I emailed
some ".odt" files home so I could do some work, and I can't open them in
Word 2003.

Maybe I just need to download Openoffice.

Openoffice has no problem working with Microsoft Office files.

Thanks for any help

Alex

There is no import filter to allow Word to open .odt files. You can
save the files in .doc format from OpenOffice and mail those to your
home. It might be easier, though, to install OpenOffice at home. The
price is right :-) and there's no problem with having both programs on
the same machine.

MS has promised an addin for Office 2007 that supports Open Document format.
I haven't seen it yet though.
