Description aziem 2008-04-16 20:01:14 UTC
Issue 60586 seems only concerned with importing OOXML.  While exporting to OOXML
may add little compatibility with Microsoft Office 2007 (because we already
support the 97/2000/XP binary formats), the largest benefit may be future
interoperability with third-party software that requires the new OOXML formats.  

All new applications will probably choose between ODF and OOXML, and to be
realistic, some will choose only OOXML just like the past they only chose the
97/2000/XP formats.

In the view of latest developments such as de facto recognition by Microsoft of
OOXML failure as an international standard
(http://osnews.com/story/19893/Microsoft:_ODF_Has_Clearly_Won), appeals against
OOXML (http://www.iso.org/iso/pressrelease.htm?refid=Ref1136), and some reports
about incompatibility of even MSO 2007 with OOXML (such as
http://www.groklaw.net/article.php?story=20080421091129596), implying that OOXML
is _not_ exactly same as MSO 2007 formats, should not this issue be split into two:
a) save to OOXML, and
b) save to MSO 2007
?
As compatibility with MSO 2007 may become a real issue in the nearest future.
Comment 4 cno 2008-07-17 20:46:26 UTC
@esperantisto: it's not sure if the O(O)XML will ever be implemented and if so,
how. Therefor current target is MsO2007 file format. So your a. is not relevant
atm, imo.
Comment 5 esperantisto 2008-07-18 07:03:27 UTC
I'm not so sure about OOXML, as ISO urged to withdraw protests against it. But
anyway, I fully agree that compatibility with MSO 2007 is more important.

So, I still believe, this issue should be split. Or closed with opening a new
issue relating to MSO 2007.

Being able to save in .docx is quite important to many users of OpenOffice as they need to submit 
documents to third parties that are (  still ;-)  ) using MS Office and for various reasons can or do not want 
to use .doc.

I need to save this document as .docx

This document is saved as .doc but it needs to be saved as .docx or else it will not be accepted. Please help me solve this issue.
Comment 11 Andrea Pescetti 2014-06-21 12:43:56 UTC
Development of a new OOXML framework has started, focusing for the moment on rewriting the import and, eventually, adding export capabilities too. See https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/OOXML and bug 125035 for more information, as well as the dev list archives: http://openoffice.apache.org/mailing-lists.html

the company I am applying for only accepts resumes in docx, I will be uninstalling and will reinstall when support is available
