Whether you knew it or not, when you installed Office 2007 on your office workstation, by default, your files were set to save in the Office 2003 file format (.doc, .xls and .ppt). At the time, the IC community was using multiple versions of Office and the Mac 2004 version couldn't read the new XML file formats used by Office 2007 for Windows and Office 2008 for Mac. That's all changed now. With the release of the Mac converter and Office 2008, plus the compatibility pack for Windows, all users on campus should be able to read documents in the new file formats (.docx, .xlsx and .pptx). ITS would like you to change your default setting and begin using the new file formats.
