I am always asked about where to get training in Microsoft Office for Word , Excel , Outlook , Powerpoint etc
Microsoft have a comprehensive training site where you can learn the basics of all the office products.
If you have not made the switch to Office 2007 from earlier version's and you receive documents that you cannot open ( such as doc x ) you will need the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word , Excel & PowerPoint 2007 File Formats.
As usual make sure you read the instructions before installing.
Google Docs now opens another 12 file formats so that if you are emailed a file that you cannot open , upload it to your Google docs account and you will be able to open it.
So what can you open with Google docs.
- Microsoft Office Files
- Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
- Apple Pages (.PAGES)
- Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
- Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
- Autodesk AutoCAD (.DXF)
- Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
- PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
- TrueType (.TTF)
- XML Paper Specification (.XPS)
