What file types can OpenOffice open?

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hello fellow members. 

I want to use Apache OpenOffice as an alternative to Microsoft Office. 

Where can I download this program and would it be compatible with Windows 7? 

What kind of files can it open? 

Can it open Word and XLS files created with Office? 

Are there any templates available for download?

Hi Edward George,

Openoffice is an office tool like those of Microsoft and it is patterned to be Microsoft's competitor, so the files that they can open are just like those of Microsoft like .Doc, .Docx, .Ppt, Microsoft access file, database, excel and etc.

This program is downloadable at openoffice.org, it is free and it is compatible on all platforms of Windows operating system

There will be no problem installing Apache OpenOffice on your computer because it supports your operating system. The latest version of Apache OpenOffice is 4.0 and it works with Windows 2003, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Linux, and Mac OS X. Although Apache OpenOffice works on the latest version of Microsoft Windows, the Windows 8, it is not yet Windows 8 certified. To know about the certification, visit Windows | Certification requirements for Windows desktop apps.

To use the software in any of the supported operating systems, you need to install Java Runtime Environment and Java Access Bridge. To download Java Access Bridge, visit Oracle | Java Access Bridge. For Linux, you also need to install GNOME 2.10 and later. To download Apache OpenOffice 4.0, visit Apache OpenOffice™ | Download Apache OpenOffice 4.0.0.
