Converting .docx, .xlsx and .pptx

Much of the world has not migration to Office 2007. You can of course set the default save format in Office 2007 to .doc, .xls, .ppt or you can explicitly specify the file format at File > Save time, but sometimes, here you are, on a machine with no Office 2007 and you need to open these new files.

  1. The Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack will endow Microsoft Office 2003 with the ability to handle these new files. Free download from Microsoft Downloads website. Note: Microsoft Office not even needed.
  2. Native Winds of Montana have a .docx to .rtf convertor.
  3. Open Office 3.0 has the ability to read Microsoft Office 2007 files.
  4. Zamzar is an online service that can convert these files
