I have a new system on my computer( Windows 7) and all documents these days are written in Microsoft word.
however when I had windows XP all my documents were written in open office word........
I have a set of instructions written for a model I'm building written on office word, but can't retrieve it in my present system of Microsoft word.........any ideas how I can recover it please without it looking hyrogliphiics.
If anyone is able to help, could they do it in words of one sylabal and step by step as I am a computor technophobe.

What does the file end in ? ie .doc , .pdf etc..  You should be able to open it in W7 if you could open it in xp , however you can get add ins from the microsoft website.

If that fails just send me the file. If that fails I still have xp and could try to convert it for you.

Redownload Open Office, way better than Mos and free. Failing that, get a Mac ;)

openoffice.org
