Microsoft Office 2007 New File Formats

Microsoft Office 2007 introduces new file formats (such as .docx, .xlsx, .pptm).

  2. Choose Word Options.

  3. Click Save in the options to the left.

  4. Set Save files in this format to Word 97-2003 Document (*.doc).

  5. Click OK.

Microsoft Office Excel 2007

  1. Click the Office icon in the top left:

  2. Choose Excel Options.

  3. Click Save in the options to the left.

  4. Set Save files in this format to Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls).

  5. Click OK.

Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007

  1. Click the Office icon in the top left:

  2. Choose PowerPoint Options.

Older Versions of Office
