Still waiting for Microsoft Office for iOS (iPads/iPhones/etc) and/or Android? Try CloudOn apps.

Like any app, it may or may not work well on your device.  Use at your own risk and CHECK THE REVIEWS first — apps may be changed after being included in the store so later updates include malware.

It’s Office 2007 and works with files from DropBox/Google Drive/Box cloud storage.  And it’s free!

Microsoft Office 2007 without a mouse

Posted on May 16, 2008. Filed under: Microsoft Office 2007, Techniques | Tags: , , , |

Okay, some of us keyboard-oriented types hate to take our hands off the keyboard to use a mouse to navigate. It’s hard on the ol’ carpal tunnel problem.

Office 2007 has a neat little trick to help: press the Alt key while in any Office 2007 program, and the ribbon with the menus instantly has a batch of little labels with the keystroke to use.  You can then use H for Home, and N for Insert, etc.

Saving money on Microsoft products

Posted on November 6, 2007. Filed under: Buying, Files, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office Suite, Microsoft Windows | Tags: , , , , |

Windows Secrets has advice and links on how to save money on Microsoft Windows and other products. Use at your own risk.

WARNING: Student/Faculty, aka “Academic” versions of Microsoft products, may NOT qualify you for cheaper “upgrade” versions later.
For example, the Office Suite’s academic version for 2003 may not be eligible for the discounted upgrade to the 2007 version, even if it
says “all versions” on the box. You may need to buy another complete academic version instead.

A converter for 2007 to 2003 is here. Use at your own risk — this has not been tested by Library staff. This site seems to be very slow to load.

NW DocX Converter will convert Word 2007 and OpenOffice swx and odt files to RTF format. Be warned — this will lose a lot of your Office formatting, so expect to only keep the actual text, and not the way it looks on the page. Use at your own risk — this has not been tested.

Microsoft Office 2007 for older versions of Office

Posted on November 6, 2007. Filed under: Everything, File conversion, Files, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office Suite | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Office 2007 Formats

Office 2007 uses a new format for Word (.docx), Excel (.xlsx) and PowerPoint (.pptx) files. In order to use these with older versions of MS Office, you will need a “compatibility pack” from Microsoft which works with Office 2000, 2002 (XP), and 2003.

If you don’t want to do that, you must remember to save as an older version format, such as “97-2003”, so your older version can still read it. Office 2007, of course, can still read older formats, but older versions of Office can’t read the newer formats without help.

The following instructions only work if you already have a licensed older version of Microsoft Office.

The Microsoft Knowledge Base article for this is 924074. Remember that Microsoft may change the location of these files, or the wording, but they should have them somewhere on their site.

  1. FIRST download the 2003 viewers for Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and install them. Several versions may be offered, but you want the 2003 viewers.
  2. Then install the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats for older Office software (2000, 2002, 2003).

REMEMBER: Office versions older than 2007 currently used on campus cannot read the new formats, so save in an older format if you want to be able to read it without Office 2007.
Be sure to get the free 2003 viewers and install them FIRST before the compatibility pack! They are essential for the compatibility pack to function.

This is NOT for use with other programs such as OpenOffice, WordPerfect, or other software.
