Multicolored Numbered List in OpenOffice Document

Creating the Template

OpenDocument Text (ODT) is a word processing document format which can be used as an alternative to Microsoft Word Document (DOC/DOCX) formats. Since ODT is not a Microsoft Proprietary format, there are multiple software (including Microsoft Office and Apache OpenOffice) available to create, open, edit and save this format. For more information on the available software to work with ODT, please visit wikipedia article.

In this topic, we'll not reinvent the wheel to recreate a template for generating an 'Multicolored Numbered List' report in ODT format. Instead, we'll save the existing template to ODT format using Microsoft Office. In order to achieve this; assuming you are using Microsoft Office 2010, please follow below steps:

  1. Open existing template we created in previous topic
  2. Click "File" and select "Save As".
  3. Select "OpenDocument Text" from "Save As Type" drop down.
  4. Click "Save".

ODT Template and Report in Apache OpenOffice

In order to check compatibility of ODT between Microsoft Office 2010 and Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2, we performed below tests:

  • We opened the ODT template created through Microsoft Office 2010 in Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2. The template opened successfully in Apache OpenOffice without any issues or formatting losses.
  • We opened the ODT report generated through GroupDocs.Assembly in Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2. The report opened successfully in Apache OpenOffice without any issues or formatting losses.
