a better place for such questions is the mailing list or a forum.

You likely need to install the filter.

Do you have got a PC with a Windows operating system? If yes, then goto 
Start > Control Panel > Software. Click on " 3.4" and 
there on "Modify". Follow the wizard to "Modify". In the tree on the 
left side open "Optional Components" and click next to "Legacy Filters". 
Chose the option "This feature, and all subfeatures, will be installed 
to local hard drive". Then follow the wizard to the end.

Apache OpenOffice has a converter for such documents, which allows to 
convert them all at once to a modern format. Start Apache OpenOffice and 
then use File > Wizards > Document Converter.

Kind regards
