tumbler, welcome to the forum.

The subject for the thread was misleading, as you are not asking about CD opening automatically, but about Open Office document being able to open on another computer.

Regarding your query, yes, it would be better to save the document as .doc, or, .rtf, and then send it over to the publisher. This can be done by using "Save as" from the menu. As posted by Joe, you can keep the file as .odt and continue working on it on the local computer.

As posted by Joe, exporting to pdf is also a great option. It's better, because it will preserve the original formatting, as the formatting can sometimes be disturbed, when the same document is opened with another program. However, sending as a PDF file will also mean that the document cannot be edited.

You can find how to export to PDF in OpenOffice, here:
