Publisher's Description

Sun ODF Plug in for Microsoft Office gives users of Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint the ability to read, edit and save to the ISO-standard Open Document Format. The ODF Plug in is available as a free download from the Sun Download Center (SDLC).

The Plug in is easy to setup and use, the conversion happens transparently and the additional memory footprint is minimal. Microsoft Office users now can have seamless two-way conversion of Microsoft Office documents to and from Open Document. The ODF Plug in runs on Microsoft Windows and is available in English. More language support will be available in later releases.

According to the README, this plugin supports Office 2000 as well as XP/2003/2007 - great news as we never wanted/needed to migrate past Office 2000!

This works pretty well for me, it only failed on a couple of very complicated documents with multiple nested tables. But there are a couple of things I'd like to see changed. It needs to have an options dialog so that you can disable the question every time you load or save a file as it gets very annoying, also an option to have it exit from memory when you close Word.

The MCAN converter is awful, but this Sun converter works great with Office 2003 files. Why would anyone want to be locked-in to MS-OOXML files is beyond me.

There is an ODF plugin for 2007 from some other guys. It's a sourceforge project so look around there.

I can't try this since I use 2007 but I want to see ODF spread, so 4/5 for effort. :)

Doesn't support Office 2007. If you're running Office, then 2007 is a MUST, so... 3 for me!

Passed every document I could throw at it. It only mis-justified a footer in one document, but it was from 1996, when .doc was only a few versions old.
