The problem is openoffice are not fully compatible to microsoft office files, i mean the margin, setting, etc. And my files mostly was ms office setting. It messed up quite a bit, in OO.o writer i have to do whole things from scratch (setting the margin, the font type, etc). This freaked me out. 

So i m trying an alternative applications n i found the most suitable one is kingsoft office, but sadly it wont run on linux. Basically can run but can't open file nor save file, maybe someday wine maker or developer will make it run on linux so that it can helps those who migrate from microsoft office.

Best regards
