Opening my Word docs

Postby charityr » Wed Jan 16, 2013 10:41 pm

I downloaded openoffice so i could access my word docs on my computer. I still can't access them using open office. do you have to do something else to link openoffice with microsoft office so you can view and update your word docs already on your computer?
Open Office.org 3.1

Have you tried to set the file association? See [Tutorial] Setting the default program for MS Office formats.
As a first step, you can try to open AOO first and then open a .doc file to check that they can be opened.

Please add '[Solved]' at the beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
AOO 4.0.1 on Windows 7 and Xubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr)
