If you want to open a OO document in MS Office, you need to save it as a MS Word Document. In the "save as" window select the "filter" drop down and choose "Microsoft Word Document".

Another possibility install ODF plugin into MSO 2003.
MSO 2003 not support odf file format.
AOO 4.0 and LibO 4 on Win 8
