"Apache Office 4" from Amazon has stopped working

I got the program on Amazon in 2018, and it is great.
Limited use maybe 30 letters a year.
I also have a phone list that is 3 pages in length.
It will no longer let me open the file, to make changes.
When I go to the file it will show all three pages in an image page.
Question.
Does this age and just cannot compete with changes to the original porgram?
I got it on Amazon for under $15.
Should I just purchase a new disk or product key?
Thank you for reviewing my comment and look forward to suggestions or resolution.

Appreciate your help

Whatever you bought on Amazon may be OpenOffice or something else planted on you by some scammer. The real OpenOffice is a free download from https://openoffice.org/
However, OpenOffice is almost dead by now. Its successor can be downloaded for free from https://libreoffice.org.

We can not know what's wrong with your phone list.

Thanks
The phone list is a word document.
For example, City Hall - area code and seven digit number.

So, will try the libreoffice.org.

What happens? Is there an error message? How are you trying to open the file?

What is the type of the file, that is the three/four letter extension after the filename?

It would be helpful to have the main information from /Help /About OpenOffice.
