Yes, you can easily convert a Word document into an OpenDocument file with Word in 4 steps:

1. Open your word document (extension .docx) in Word.

2. Click the File menu, then click Save As menu item. You will see the "Save As" box showing up.

3. In the "Save as type:" field, select "OpenDocument Text (*.odt))" option from the dropdown list.

4. Click the Save button. You will see a warning message dialog box showing up. It says: "Saving Word_Tutorials.docx may contain features that are not compatible with this format. Do you want to save the document in this format?"

5. Click the OK button to ignore this warning. A OpenDocument Text file will be created. Embedded objects from the original Word document are lost during this conversion.
