The Doc, Xls, Ppt files all used to have this problem too but now that MS have stopped developing it so much and moved to developing their newer formats it's finally these older formats that ARE good for sharing between different programs.
The old MS Binary specifications last had an update of significance (change in technical nature) on 2014-04-30 (XLS) and 2012-01-20 (DOC and PPT). IOW they are still being updated as required. ----- Best wishes, Owen. -- View this message in context: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/What-version-tp4118061p4118457.html Sent from the Users mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- To unsubscribe e-mail to: email@example.com Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
