open office advice sought

  Newuser2 19:44 17 May 2008

I,ve downloaded Open Office and am impressed, so much so that I would like to uninstall Lotus SmartSuite.
If I do that will I be able to read all my documents using Open Office.

The OpenOffice suite is highly compatible with Office, but I don't think Writer can handle WordPro files, not sure about 123 spreadsheets.

The spread sheets seem to open OK but Lotus Word Pro has issues with the character set.
I uninstalled IBM Symphony and Open Office opens all those docs. OK.
I think I've tried all combo's of the character sets to no avail.
I'll keep on at it and post back.
Thanks for your help.

According to the OO forum Lotus Word Pro is not recognized by OO.
Lotus Symphony does but I found that buggy and it kept locking the PC up.
Thanks for your help.
