Greetings and welcome to the community forum!

What format is the template document--.odt? .doc? Something else?

If you have an .odt template, you can just open it as usual; OO will see that it's a template and start a new untitled document. If you want to access the template from the menus, then you have to use File > Templates > Organize and import the template file.

This template is also built in to OOo. Use File-->New Labels. On the Labels Tab under Brand select Avery Letter Size and under type select 5160.

And the one built in to AOO is the one you want to use!
