OpenOffice will read your Office 2007 without a problem. In any case you can download it (it
is 100% free and gratis) and test for yourself if the documents look exactly as you expected.
If not then you can buy a new version of Microsoft Office.

ODT is the Open Document format, an open standard that will solve future problems of having
to buy software from the same provider. After opening your Office 2007 documents in OpenOffice,
when you modify them you can choose to save again in Office 2007 format or in Open Document
format. It is up to you!

In the future when you have questions please post them at the user forum (
This is the mailing list for the OpenOffice developers ;)
