    Converting OOo document from SXW to DOC


    I've typed up an essay, and I saved it as a SXW file. Well, of course it didn't open in word. So, I went in and saved it as a Word 97/2000/XP document. I went to open it in Word and it gave me an error telling me that the document name is not valid.

    It will only open the jibberish in WordPad. If I try to open it in Word, it gives me the access error.

    I searched the web for SXW to DOC converters for the Windows OS, but nothing showed up.

    Does it still open in OOo?

    If so save it as rtf or summat.

    I'll just save it as RTF next time and format it myself.
