I am using AOO 4.11; with Windows 7-32.
I tried to get OO writer to open a .WPD file but all that I got was 'garbage'.
Suspect that I'm doing something wrong.

What program was the WPD file created in?
If it was Word Perfect, as I suspect based on the WP portion, then you need to convert it to something that OO will work with.
The Word Perfect import/export routines have been removed from the current version of OO.
You could try an older version of OO or try submitting the file(s) to Zamzar for conversion

You can also try Libreoffice http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/. It still has support for .WPD files.
