92. About Sharing Documents with Microsoft Office Users

 < Day Day Up > 

OpenOffice.org makes it easy for you to share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with users of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint). You can save your OpenOffice.org files in a format that can be opened by a Microsoft Office application. For example, you can save your Writer documents in a Word document format.

OpenOffice.org can save files in Microsoft Office file formats.

You can also email documents, spreadsheets, and presentations directly from one of the OpenOffice.org applications (select File, Send from an OpenOffice.org application window). An option is provided that attaches the document in a Word or Excel format. This means that the recipient of the email can immediately open the sent file in the Microsoft Office application required.

In cases where you must open a file created in Microsoft Office, you can open the file in the appropriate OpenOffice.org application immediately. Just select Open from the OpenOffice.org application's Function bar and then browse to locate the file and then open it. OpenOffice.org opens the document, spreadsheet, or presentation without a hitch. You can then save changes that you make to the file in the original Microsoft Office format or use Save As to save the document in the native OpenOffice.org XML file format.
