Microsoft Office alternative?????

Anyone use one, I've tried one but it didn't read/correlate very well with word/publisher docs!

Re: Microsoft Office alternative?????

That's the one (bugga'd if i could remember the name  big_smile )

I found it fine, but the wife and kids said it was not recognizing word docs, and Word wasn't recognizing theirs!
(work and homework)

Word won't recognise the files unless they're saved specifically in a doc format in OO. OO should recognise the Word files, unless it's some new or broken Word implementation. Are you running the latest version of OpenOffice?

Re: Microsoft Office alternative?????

if you were running office 2007, your files would be .docx or .xlsx, should be able to get plugins free for OO, and just change OO default save to .doc
