    I'm a novice computer person. I'm having trouble trying to move all my Word and Excel files to Open Office. I use Office XP programs for XP_ Pro sp3. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Can someone please Help??? Thanks in advance, Peteski

    OPen Office should be able to read your Office XP documents without too much trouble.
    However, some formatting will probably turn out different that expected and some Excel functionality may not work in Open Office.

    Don't expect your VBA (if you have any) in to work.
