There might have been more response if you had chosen the name
Open-Office instead of M$-$%@! :-)

One of the best solutions is through tex4ht. Use tex4ht to convert
to .html (though there is a method to go directly to the open office
format using tex4ht, I suggest the html approach). Then import this html
into Open-Office *Again my recommendation is Open-Office instead of the
thing that you want :-)* All the equations (images or mathml),
citations, cross-references figure and tables would be preserved. You
can then import it in Open-Office or many other software!

By the way point the editor and typesetter to the "multiverse" :-P
