What is SXW file?

SXW is a text document file originally generated by StarOffice Writer software tool. SXW files store text data along with charts, images, and other elements. SXW can also hold information regarding text formatting, fonts style and size, page layout etc.

SXW file format is based on OpenDocument XML. The file data comprises character and word sequences encoded in ASCII. Hence, SXW format is similar to DOCX document format.

SXW format origins

SXW files were used by Apache OpenOffice Writer, which replaced the original software that introduced the SXW files, StarOffice Writer. Now, OpenOffice saves files as ODT documents by default.
