docx? xlsx? pptx? mdbx? Open Office 2007 file in older Microsoft Office

doiwl 30 November 2007 2:22 am

Just another public service posting by doiwl.com…hehe 

.docx? .xlsx? .pptx? Why is there a “x” there and how to open it? If you are asking this question, I guess you are using Microsoft Office 2003 or lower.

The docx, xlsx, mdbx, pptx, those with Xs are default file format of Office 2007. How to open those files?

  • Upgrade to Office 2007 lah!
    Office 2007 is cool, it totally revamped the User Interface so that some of the functions which is too hidden can now be easily accessed. (Anyway after upgrading to 2007 you will need some time to familiarize with it.)
     
  • If I don’t want to upgrade, what to do?
    Go here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=941B3470-3AE9-4AEE-8F43-C6BB74CD1466&displaylang=en download the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats and no more troubles!

If this information is useful to you, post some comment la… haha!

    Erm…just save as Office 1997-2003 also can…but that requires the author to do so…otherwise the compatibility pack is necessary. Your post is useful! Here’s my comment haha. Doi, update my blog link please hehe. New blog. :D

    Ya, I know that, but then just want to promote the use of Open XML file format (those with Xs), after all it is still better than those proprietery binary file format lo… Open source… easy for the programmer next time.

    new blog again? Don’t shutdown your blog so often la…
