Comments: Migrating from Word to Open Office format

The problem I've had at work (everyone else has MS Office; I've got Open Office) is that when I open a Word document, I get all the formatting, but when I save it back, it's about 1/3 the size, and MS Word no longer has all the information it used to have about the document.

Makes it hard to work collaboratively on documents. No problem with things I generate from scratch, though. It may just be an options setting, but they've decided they should buy me a copy of MS Office so that we don't have these problems in future.
