Thanks for Scott's and Tom's suggestions so far.

My motivation for the original question was that I prefer to keep the single
installation of LibreOffice 3.5 that exists in our group, if one of *.pot or
*.potx can work reasonably well in LibreOffice. I hope that LibreOffice will
become the main office suite, but again that is proving to be difficult in a
Microsoft dense environment.

If in the end it really doesn't work, then perhaps we will have to go with
e-letter's "simplest solution", which is to replace LibreOffice on that
machine with Microsoft Office.

e-letter's response may not be wrong, but I agree with Tom that rudeness is
neither required nor helpful, and will certainly not attract new users to
LibreOffice. I have a great desire to switch to LibreOffice and other Free
Software, and therefore will continue trying despite possible rude responses
to my best, honest attempt at asking questions. If my colleagues asked the
original question, they might have already been turned away and installed
Microsoft Office on that one machine.

I also believe Tom *did* contribute by making a suggestion, which I will try
(and also Scott's). Thanks again for all your responses!
