open files with extension .sxw?

I have recently downloaded OpenOffice Portable 3.0 onto my computer which runs Windows Vista. I typed up a document for the first time using this software. I named it with an extension .sxw

But, I cannot open the file.

Could someone please tell me how to open it?

    Why did you choose to use an ".sxw" file extension? That extension, as described below, is for sharing with users of Star Office. OOo should be able to re-open it, unless the file is damaged.

    The Default file extension in OOo is ".odt" and you could also save the file as an ".doc" for MS-Word, or ".rtf" to share with anyone. PDF is another good option.

    TIP: Open OOo Writer, and click on the Help Files to learn more about file types.
