Office can open and save documents in the Microsoft Office file formats, including Microsoft Office Open XML formats.
|Microsoft Office file...||...will open in Office module|

|Microsoft PowerPoint, *.ppt, *.pps, *.pptx||Office Impress|
Choose File - Save As.
In the File type box, select a Microsoft Office file format.
Choose Tools - Options - Load/Save - General.
In the Default file format and ODF settings area, first select a document type, then select the file type for saving.
From now on, if you save a document, the File type will be set according to your choice. Of course, you still can select another file type in the file save dialogue box.
In Windows’ File Explorer, right-click a file of the type that you want to assign to another application.
In the context menu, choose Open with - Choose another app.
In the list of applications that appears, select the program that should open the current type of files. Make sure that “Always use this app” is checked.
If these steps do not apply to your brand of Microsoft Windows, search your Microsoft Windows Help for instructions how to change the file associations.
The Document Converter Wizard will copy and convert all Microsoft Office files in a folder into Office documents in the OpenDocument file format. You can specify the folder to be read, and the folder where the converted files are to be saved.
With a few exceptions, Microsoft Office and Office cannot run the same macro code. Microsoft Office uses VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) code, and Office uses Basic code based on the Office API (Application Program Interface) environment. Although the programming language is the same, the objects and methods are different.
The most recent versions of Office can run some Excel Visual Basic scripts if you enable this feature at Tools - Options - Load/Save - VBA Properties.
If you use macros in one of the applications and want to use the same functionality in the other application, you must edit the macros. Office can load the macros that are contained within Microsoft Office files and you can then view and edit the macro code in the Office Basic IDE editor.
Open a Microsoft Office document that contains VBA macro code. Change only the normal contents (text, cells, graphics), and do not edit the macros. Save the document as a Microsoft Office file type. Open the file in Microsoft Office, and the VBA macros will run as before.
You may delete the VBA macros from the Microsoft Office file on loading or on saving.
