Currently there is no other option than to convert them. OpenOffice 3.0 will have support for those new file formats. You should be able to download the public beta at the OpenOffice website but I don't think this will be available in Hardy any time soon.

This is one of the downsides of people using proprietary file formats.

Can you help with this problem?
