I'm working on a paper with someone else due monday and I wont be able to get a hold of them until then - They sent me their half of the project in a docx format, which I can't open with Open Office. I doubt I'm screwed, but I cant figure out how to open it.

Help >_<

I'd love to be the one disappoint you when I don't fall down

    .docx is Word 2008 where for whatever reason MS decided to change all their shit about.

    A quick Google resulted in this, which you may or may not trust.

    Microsoft actually released a file converter, available here. If you use it to open a .docx file, a dialogue pops up letting you save the file in Word 1997-2003 .doc format, which OpenOffice reads just fine. (My students are forever sending me shit in .docx, so I sympathize with your plight).

    I'm here to tell you about voting. Imagine you're locked in a huge underground nightclub filled with sinners, whores, freaks and unnameable things that rape pit bulls for fun. And you ain't allowed out until you all vote on what you're going to do tonight [. . .] So you vote for television, and everyone else, as far as your eye can see, votes to fuck you with switchblades. That's voting. You're welcome.

    Well then that's a better solution.

    My university recently switched to docx but it's a right fucking pain in the bum so no-one uses it. Some lecturers won't accept docx any more because they refuse to use the new Word.

    The files were invisible after I saved them under a different format, which was weird. I had to the navigate to the folder through windows explorer, and move it somewhere else - that made it visible.

    Worked fairly well otherwise, Thanks.

    OO.o 3.0 can natively open .docx, .xlsx and all the .abcx files.
