It's important, however, to recognize that although OpenOffice will
let you read and create doc files, it is *not* Word. If the document
you are reading has simple formatting, any differences in how it
renders it will likely be slight or nonexistent. But if the formatting
is more complex, the rendering differences can be more severe.
I don't mean to recommend against OpenOffice, but only to point out
that for someone who needs to open files created by others (such as
the OP here), it may or may not be adequate to the task. If you want
to use it to create your own doc files, however, it's probably fine
for most people.
