Opening ODM files

Did your computer fail to open an ODM file? We explain what ODM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your ODM files.

What is an ODM file?

Files that contain the .odm file extension are most commonly associated with the OpenOffice OpenDocument software application.

This freeware application was created to allow for the exchange of word processing documents across a variety of different word processing applications and computer platforms. It was also intended to be a free alternative to the more costly and "corporate" Microsoft Word word processing software.

The ODM documents that are used by this application contain global text documents that are saved in the XML file format.

The OverDrive Media Console has also been known to use the .odm file suffix. These ODM files contain the media control files that are used by the application.
