Opening odt files

Have a problem opening a .odt file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what odt files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .ODT file type?

The .odt extension belongs to the Open Document Document (ODF) format and is used to denote ODF word processor files (ODT, Open Document Text). ODF is a standardized open and free XML-based format, covering many documents types (spreadsheets, word processor files, databases, presentations etc.) for office productivity solutions.

An .odt file is a platform-independent word processor file that can be opened, edited and saved in a number of open-source and commercial office suites. ODT files are natively supported by OpenOffice, an open office suite backed by Apache Software Foundation (ASF), and its many derivatives.
