    AFAIK Office can't read OO.o formats, but openOffice can write to the exel format (.xls?).

    Apparently Office 12 will now be supporting Open Document format., but obviously that;s in the future and not much help to you now.

    Everything I have read says MS will NOT be supporting OpenDocument in any version of office.. makes no sense to me, but hey whatever...

    There is a third party working on a filter to convert OO writer documents to Word doc format...
