I am using Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS, but am required to produce a document readable by MS Word. Can MS Word read .odt documents, or is OpenOffice capable of exporting into a .doc format so that it is seamlessly read by MS Word?
I'm using the following version of OpenOffice:
Source: openoffice.org Version: 1:3.2.0-7ubuntu4
My installation is an older one, maybe the newer version of the ooffice works better with exporting to .doc? I've noticed. for example, that when I export to doc and insert images into the file, if I read the .doc file again, the images are not there.. as well as some formatting glitches.
Is there a version of openoffice/libreoffice that is known to export to a format of MS Word in a way that doesn't introduce formatting errors?
