Don read our article about syncing Excel files with OneDrive and had a question:

“I received your Tech Tips in which you give a way to sync Excel to one drive so all goes to both one drive and computer at the same time, and I wondered if the same is true with Open Office by Apache? I use Open Office almost exclusively as I simply cannot afford Excel.”

Don, this will work for any document on your Windows PC, no matter what program you created it with.  Let’s check out how to sync the documents on your PC to OneDrive in Windows 7.  Open File Explorer then lick on OneDrive. If you don’t already have a file called Documents, you’ll want to create one.
