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

doiwl November 30th, 2007

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?

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