Does OOo support .docx format?

Postby mrsschlesner » Sun Oct 09, 2011 8:45 pm


I am a student, but do not have MSOffice. I use OOo 3.3 or 3.4 Beta. Some programs I use for homework automatically open a doc to proof it or grade it, but they want the docs to be .docx files. Any way I could hope to be able to save as .docx in the near future?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Better avoid the OOXML format, have a look at: MS Office 2007 OOXML file format (docx, xslx, pptx, ppsx).

Standards like ODF (native format for OOo) have been designed for interoperability.

NB: LibreOffice has decided to support OOXML. Not the best decision IMHO. OOo could save in OOXML but it was the team's decision not to allow that.
AOO 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) and on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).
