Downloaded OpenOffice on my new laptop with Windows 7 at the recommendation of my "programmer" son-in-law, but am finding it has more of a learning curve than I have time for right now. (I WILL get to this at some point - but no time now. LOL)
I installed my old standby, MS Office 2003, for now and had to figure out (thanks, in part, to your forum) how to make sure than any future things I do in Open Office are "saved as" Word or Excel files. I also changed all of the OpenOffice default program settings that were applicable (.doc, .rtf, .slk, etc.) in the Windows 7 default program option.
Now I'm wondering if there is a way to do a "batch" convert of the OpenOffice files I've created in the past two months over to Word or Excel files?
Now that I've changed defaults, will all icons still be the OpenOffice icons on all docs? This really makes for confusion as to which have been converted and which have not. I finally created a folder, "Converted" and am opening and saving all of the OpenOffice files I've created one-by-one in Office format. I'll then have to delete the OpenOffice files, I guess. Is there a quicker, more simple way to do it?
