[Solved] Filter for MSWord2013

Postby jvchbabu » Thu Jul 23, 2015 9:57 am

We use UNO JAVA API to covert documents to MSWord 97 and 2007 .The filter we use is "MS Word 97".
Now MSWord 2011 and MS Word2013 out in the market.I use open office 4.0.1 version currently. I didn't find a filter for MSWord 2011 and MSWord 2013.
Could please let us know MS filter for MSWord 2013.

Try the LibreOffice. The LO can save into OOXML formats.

The option of switching to LibreOffice can be taken after we get confirmation that there is no filter to convert the documents to OOXML ( MSword 2011 or MSword 2013 or docx)

See the menu in AOO:
File - Save as - 'filterlist' drop down:
the 'latest' MS format what you can save to is the MS 2003 XML. There is not OOXML (MS 2007-2010-2013) option in Apache OpenOffice 4.1.1, but there is in Libreoffice 4.4.4... Is it enough to confirm?

In fact, the code is somewhere but it was a decision from the OOo team at that time not to implement the OOXML filter.
Don't remember where I've read that however.

I've tagged the topic as solved, I think there are enough evidences that this filter is not available in AOO.
AOO 4.1.4 on Xubuntu 17.10, (Artful Aardvark) and 4.1.3 on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).

As long as MS Word supports doc perfectly well and OpenOffice supports doc very well, there is no need to support another document format poorly. It is better to not write a poorly supported file format like LO does causing a lot of confusion. Better nudge Microsoft towards better ODF support which is by a magnitute easier to implement than OOXML.
