I found out after completing many homework questions that I need to submit them in .docx, .doc or .rtf. Is there any way to convert what I have, or do I have to start all over?

Hi,

There should be no problem just save your document in Microsoft Word 97/2000 (.doc)
Minor formatting problems could occur.

I can only save in .odf, .sxm and .mml. Keep in mind, I am using Open Office Math, not the word processor. The only export option is .pdf. Is there conversion software somewhere available?

In my experience, the formula editor "Math" has virtually no concept of page layout, so even the PDF export option is fairly useless.

If you have done your entire work in Math, insert your Math file (saved to the ODF format) into a Writer document, and save that to a doc-file. As a security precaution, check the output with MS Word viewer (freely available from Microsoft) before submitting.

If the work you have done spreads across several pages, you will have to split it up. As mentioned above, Math doesn't know about page edges and such.

By insert do you mean just copy paste the code section? Because that doesn't keep any of the formatting and is essentially useless.

Sorry! I should have been more explicit.

Open Writer. Select menu item Insert - Object - OLE, then the option Create from file. Browse to your Math file, and accept.

As I mentioned earlier, formulas spanning several pages won't work. If you have that, you need to split your file.

I think that you can use a free online convertor. There are plenty on the internet.
All the best!!!
