Posted on February 26, 2011. Filed under: File conversion, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Office Suite, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

OpenXML/ODF Translator Add-ins for Office is a download for your Microsoft Office Suite (or parts thereof) that allow Office programs to read the Open Document formats produced by other programs, such as OpenOffice/OxygenOffice (which is on the Library Software disk).

If you’re using OpenOffice at home, but Microsoft Office elsewhere, this is one way to handle transferring files.

Of course, you can always simply save the OpenOffice files in Microsoft Office format.

Microsoft Office alternatives

Posted on November 6, 2007. Filed under: Everything, Freeware/Shareware, Microsoft Office Suite, viewers | Tags: , , , , |

Not everyone has Microsoft Office at home, on their laptop or elsewhere. What can you do to see, or edit, Microsoft Office files in that case?

  • Microsoft Office viewers are available if you don’t have Microsoft Office programs. Click here for the download page for viewers for all MS Office products before 2007, Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook, Access, and Visio.
  • You can also use LibreOffice (a freeware equivalent for MS Office Suite) to view many formats of Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and Access files — as well as edit and save them to MS Office formats. LibreOffice is a huge freeware program comparable to (and compatible with) Microsoft Office. You can save in Microsoft format (instead of the default format) and use the files on campus computers.
