Are you using – Office XP, 2000 & 2003 – docx doesn’t work!

For those running Office XP, 2000 and 2003 – guess what if you get a document from your friends or office and the document was created in 2007 or 2010 – you can’t open these files.  Microsoft has a free compatibility pack that is available which allows users to open these files.

You can always ask that person to save it in a format that you can load up!

OFFICE for MAC 2011 – Coming!

If you’re a district that uses Office for the MAC you will be happy to hear Microsoft is finally releasing the latest version at the end of October.   Not much news about the features at this point though.

One article from Znet – Microsoft confirms Office for Mac 2011 coming October 26

Microsoft officials also shared information about two previously undisclosed features that will be part of the new Mac Office suite. One, known as Dynamic Reorder, allows users to interactively re-order all the layers in a document or presentation. The other, Full Screen View, is part of Word 2011, and will allow users to block out background distractions by filling the screen with one view optimized for writing and the other for reading.
