The Question is:

Is there a method to view MS Word documents on an Alpha 600 running OpenVMS

The Answer is :

  Within OpenVMS itself, there are no tools to display this or other
  Microsoft-proprietary file formats.
  There is a port of OpenOffice to OpenVMS underway, and the text within
  the Microsoft Word document can potentially be displayed using available
  ports of the CATDOC or other similar tool.
