Changes in the HWP file format and changes in the Microsoft product line have raised questions about whether Microsoft products can open HWP files. So, OpenOffice.org can open a document from Hangul 97. However, due to alterations to the Hangul software, OpenOffice cannot open a document created after 97. Download HwpConverter.exe by clicking the Download button (above) and save the file to your hard disk. Run HwpConverter.exe. The files will be extracted to%Program Files% Microsoft Office Office15. To open and edit a HWP file, open a supported Microsoft Word program, choose HWP 5.0 type in file open filter, and select a HWP file.

|Description||The full name of the HWP file extension is a Hanword Document. Hanword was previously known as Hangul Word Processor; Hangul being the alphabet used in the Korean language. This word processing system has the ability to save documents that are written in Hangul. It is a very popular word processing system within Korea, but isn’t used as much outside of the country. The HWP word processing system is a typical word processing document and contains many of the same word processing functionality as many other systems. This includes the standard use of text and graphics, along with formatting functions.||The Office Open XML file formats are a set of file formats that can be used to represent electronic office documents. There are formats for word processing documents, spreadsheets and presentations as well as specific formats for material such as mathematical formulae, graphics, bibliographies etc.|
|Technical details||There is a great deal of inconsistency as to whether HWP files can be opened by Microsoft products. This is because of dramatic changes in the HWP file format as well as changes with the Microsoft product line. OpenOffice.org has the ability to open a document that was created in Hangul 97. However, because of changes with the Hangul software, documents created later than that cannot be opened in OpenOffice. Because of this inconsistency, Hangul users frequently work with HWP files and send them to others without knowing that the recipient will no longer be able to open them. However the files can still be converted via an online document converter.||Office Open XML documents are stored in Open Packaging Convention (OPC) packages, which are ZIP files containing XML and other data files, along with a specification of the relationships between them. Depending on the type of the document, the packages have different internal directory structures and names.|
