that file with Open Office it comes up with something called “Filter Selection” and it
has a lot of types of files you could open that file with. I clicked on one and it came with
an error. 

I don't believe the password method used in Word is compatible with the
one in OpenOffice.  You'll have to open it in Word, then save without a
password.  Once you have it in OpenOffice, you can apply a password again.
