Open Office is a free and open-source collection of seven applications that work together in order to provide the features that are used in today’s office software. These applications are: Writer – Word Processing, Draw – Graphics Editing, Calc – Spreadsheet Editing, Impress – Presentation Creation and Base – Used for Databases.
Open Office is a free and open-source office suite which can be used for word processing, spreadsheets, databases, presentations, graphics and much much more. Open Office is available in many languages and works on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. Open Office stores all the data in international standard format which means that the files created by Open Office can be also opened by other office suites such as Microsoft Office, iWork and NeoOffice.
We know that a lot of people have documents that have been created using other office software packages. Open Office is compatible with most of the popular office software and file extensions which allows it to read those files with a fairly high degree of accuracy. We have even had cases where Open Office could read files that were deemed corrupted or unusable by other software. If your friends or coworkers are using other office software you will still be able to easily swap files with them or even better, give them a free copy of Open Office to use.
Open Office has a very similar interface to MS office which means that almost anybody who has ever used an office suite before will quickly be able to learn how to use our software. Even the most advanced office users will be able to find what they need such as custom templates, macros and collaborative features. Open Office also lets you import and export files from other other programs. You will be able to open and save these files as well as convert them to many other formats including PDF, HTML and XML.
If you ever have a problem with Open Office, you can refer to the vast amount of information and tutorials found in the Wiki section of our website. If that is not enough, we have a very active community forum that is visited by thousands of other Open Office users every day.
