I made a very important document using Puppy 5.1 with AbiWord. Next I was to copy it on another PC using Ubuntu 11.10. I opened it easily & worked on it with LibreOffice Writer. My document is ready & I must in few hours print it via PC not serving Linux text editors = I must convert it into MSWord like format. Please, young friends, help me explaining me old 63 years old man what should I do to finish my work?

What format does this MCWord use, or do you mean Microsoft Word. – Mateo Mar 5 '13 at 3:14
If you want the document to look the same as you see it and there is no need for the recipient to change it, go for PDF as output format. – 0xC0000022L Mar 5 '13 at 3:32
When you've opened a file in LibreOffice, click on File, Save As. In the window that opens, near the bottom right, click on All Formats. Choose an appropriate MS Office version such as Microsoft Word '97/2000/XP/2003: don't go for .docx unless it's absolutely needed; just go with .doc. – user25656 Mar 5 '13 at 3:35

Unless some other person needs to edit the document, create a PDF version and print that. In LibreOffice Writer: File / Export as PDF ... / Export.
