Usefull add-ons from Microsoft

  • One of the most important thing is Microsoft compatibility Pack. It allows users with Ms Office 2003 read documents from MS office 2007. I already installed it for a few users… Sad, but true – it’s almost impossible to live without it, when users have 2003 and 2007 versions of Office.

As they say, you can use this pack even if you don’t have office 2003. Well, never tried, but it was very usefull when I needed to open and view files made with MS Office 2007 as I can’t explain for  every user how to save docs in compatible 2003  format… Still hate those incompatibillity  issues and do not understant why THEY make so many different file versions and everytime people need a new program or plugin.

  • One more thing is Save As PDF or XPS. It is very usefull, when you get used to PDF files after using or just must provide an alternative format. Unfortunately, this add-on is only for 2007 MS Office users. Just one thing which is not very convenient, as I used to press only one button in OO to save as PDf,  and now I have to navigate to SAVE AS and find this option…
