It's really annoying when you can't open an XML file in an early version of Microsoft Office that's been created in a more recent version of Office.
The reason for this is all the XML that's been added to Office to allow you to make more graphic rich documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Open XML Converter is a Microsoft tool that allows you to convert Open XML files that were created in Office 2008 for Mac or Office 2007 for Windows so that you can open, edit, and save them in earlier versions of Office for Mac. It allows you to convert Word, Excel and PowerPoint presentations either one-by-one or in batches.
Using it is extremely simple. Simply drag and drop documents or files into the large 'Drag and Drop' target in the main interface. You can select whether to save the converted file into the same location as the original or in a new location. Alternatively, you can opt to convert several files at once and browse to their location. Microsoft Office Open XML File Format Converter for Mac will then convert your files showing a log of everything that's happening.
If you've ever been left frustrated by an awkward XML file in Office, Microsoft Office Open XML File Format Converter for Mac should provide the solution you need.
