    Default .swx (OPen Office) File Filter for Microsoft Office

    I have been using open office for about a year and have been very impressed with what the Open source community has to offer. However, I have a just installed the latest Microsoft Office and I wish to open some files from Open office (.swx) in Microsoft Word.
    Is there a file filter I can download from somewhere so I can open Open office documents (.swx) in microsoft word?

    thanks for any help

    If it is only a couple of documents, you can open them up in OOo and then choose "Save As" and then pick "Save as type" and select MS 97/2000/XP (.doc) to covert the document to a MS compatible format.

    Unfortuantely I have 100+ files to convert, maybe if there is some program that can mass convert them or something???

    Have a look at this converter here - it should be able to do .swx to .doc. I would practice with a few copies of your documents first.
