My OOO opens docx without any problem, I should dive in and see what's been done...
BTW docx is just a zipped xml-file, so if you change the extension to zip you can open it with fileroller...

Here is one solution: http://www.sigmundvoid.com/?p=81
...also found [this] in the Ubuntu forums...

I was able to open such a file recently (it was an Excel 2007 format I think). The file format wasn't registered in the system so (double-)clicking on the icon would not open it, but it could be opened from Calc "File->Open" menu.
