Microsoft Office is a popular office suite which is sometimes used as alternative to OpenOffice. It’s used in some businesses but is very expensive to use so the average person wouldn’t be able to use it, but it does include all of the features included in this plus more. In this article, we’re going to be talking about how to use Microsoft Office files without having any problems. You’ll hopefully see by the end of it that it’s very simple to do and doesn’t require any major changes to benefit from the full support our office suite has for this alternative piece of software.
To start with, we just want to say that you’ll probably find that this is far more flexible than MS Office. Our office suite provides full support for both its native formats and other formats whereas the alternatives limit you to their own formats, which makes using this program far easier. No matter what file formats you’re trying to work with, you’ll know that the tools we have to offer will work with it and you’ll never have any compatibility issues like you would if you tried something else. Now that we’ve stated this, we’ll talk a bit about other formats.
Opening MS Office Files
If you have friends who use MS Office, maybe even collegues, then the ability to open these files is essential. You may also find that documents on the internet often use the .doc format. Luckily, there isn’t anything advanced you need to do to use these files! If you open up the office suite and then select the file, you’ll see that it opens up exactly as you would expect with no problems. However, do remember that some of the features may not be usable because of the differences between the two sets of tools, this is to be expected. Most of the main features you need will be available straight away so you can open and read them as much as you want.
Creating Documents for MS Office
We’ve talked about opening up MS Office files, but what happens if you want to do it the other way around? You might want to create documents for these users too, which is luckily equally as simple. All you have to do is design it exactly as you would normally, using all of the great features you’re familiar with in Open Office. Once you’ve designed it and added all of the content and are happy that it’s finished, you can then save it into the regular format. However, you can also choose to save it into the relevant Microsoft format by going into File –> Save As and then choosing Microsoft Word. By doing this, a .doc file will be created on your hard drive which will work perfectly in both this suite and Microsoft Office. This is all you need to do.
In conclusion, you should now know how easy it is to work with MS Office files. There isn’t anything complicated you have to do, it’s been built to work automatically and it does the job well. No matter what your friends or collegues use, you’ll be able to run Open Office on your system knowing that your office suite can fully support everything they’re doing. We highly recommend that you install it now and benefit from the years of work that has been put into this set of tools.
