/ open office files
Microsoft don't play well with others' formats :-(
Typing the following "converting odt to doc" in to a well known search engine gives a few on-line conversion utilities.
It's an absolute chew at my workplace- I have to send the stuff home and use my own laptop to convert them because my workplace are too mean to pay for a commercial licence for OO and I can't download executable files. I often have to email people back to ask if they can provide the file in a word format, and if not, it either doesnlt get to play at all or I have to fanny about at home once I get in.
You don't need a license for commercial use of Open Office:
Once you've got it imported, you should be able to 'download as' MS Word format.
as per geebus you can use google online docs to convert it.
However your company might have something to say about that from a data protection stance (although they should have the same to say about taking it home).
Newer versions of word, 2007 up can convert most varieties i believe.
I wondered if this was the case. I've got someone to e-mail me a word version, but I resent forking out for my own copy of 2007 when 2003 works fine
> as per geebus you can use google online docs to convert it.
ooh, I shall try that, many thanks.
Least said soonest mended although that is exactly what the IT helpdesk suggested i do!
Still suck with word 2003 here, sadly. Again, the Trust sees no reason to upgrade. We're still running IE7 as well, on the basis that some Trust systems aren't compatible with IE9. Every day, bits of the internet are being lost to us ;(
