As for your question: did you search the site? I think what you want to know is covered in this earlier Q&A, and probably by several others. LibO Writer reads and writes both DOC and DOCX formats, almost perfectly with simple documents; for complex documents, I find better compatibility with the former than latter. What is your operating system and version?
