Can come in handy when you need to convert from the new .docx default document format in MS Word 2007 and 2008 to something like a .doc file, which if you have one of the old Office Word programs.

It can conver between many other files.

NOTE: Requires email to where it should send results when it has finished the conversion.


Have you ever wanted to convert files without the need to download software ?

Hi TheHive!


I tried it once with a XLSX file but it didn't worked any good.. :huh:

Also installed the office 2003 converters but something went wrong as well, ended up installing office 2007 just for converting back the much needed excel data.

Nowadays use XLS as exchange format between all possible MS Office and Open Office programs.

:huh:

Forgot mentioning that the latest Open Office versions also open up the dreaded MS format.
