I am working on Documnet management so there are thousands of document in office 2003 format, i need to convert them in later version using open xml sdk

Firstly I would ask why you need to convert them, since any later version of MSOffice or OpenOffice can read the old format files. However, if you wish to do it via code then you will need to use either the Microsoft.Office.Interop or the OpenOffice SDK; both systems can be found easily via Google.

No, you need to use the Office.Interop as I mentioned before.
