File Formats

Hi Dave,

A couple of questions for you.

For my final submissions (Pre-Production Module), I will be submitting a Microsoft Word document and a PowerPoint presentation. I use Microsoft Word 2007 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2007,

Microsoft Word 2007 generates a .docx file, this type of file does not open on previous versions of word. To view this type of file on an earlier version of Microsoft Word you need first to convert it to a .doc file. With PowerPoint 2007 I can convert the file so it can be viewed with earlier versions of PowerPoint. The problem with converting these files is that you lose some of the formatting and to my mind lessen the visual impact.

Can you open .docx files? Can you open PowerPoint 2007 files.
