My uni computers now appear to save stuff as docx files. This is really irritating as I use open office on my laptop.
I saved a report at uni today, and brought it home, assuming I could get the docx converter to put it into html format for me, but it doesn't appear to be e-mailing me the final result.
Has anyone else used docx converter? Does anyone have a better way of doing it? Does anyone know if I can still save uni stuff as a .doc file, or will I have to use docx from now on?
I'm very confused!
Just save the file as a .doc on the uni computer, it will be in the drop down list when you save it.
I'm sure I remember someone telling me the newest version of OpenOffice can open .docx files, I may be wrong or misinformed though. If not, then as IChem said, you can select .doc format when saving the document at uni.
The DocX converter you mentioned should work, you could alternatively obtain a copy of office 2007.
I could... but Microsoft Office costs money!
I'll try downloading the newest version of OpenOffice and see what happens...
The new openoffice (I downloaded it a couple of weeks ago) appears to have a (.doc) option. When you save, there should be a drop down menu next to 'save as type' and it should be on there!
If I remember right you can also download a free 30 day trial of the MS office from the microsoft website which would solve your problem right now.
