ABSTRACT
Starting with Office 2007, Microsoft switched to Office Open XML (OOXML) as the default file formats for its applications. However, the legacy .doc (Word), .xls (Excel) and .ppt (PowerPoint) file formats are still supported in Office and widely used for compatibility with documents created in versions of Office from Office 97 to Office 2003. The older, legacy formats are used worldwide and are expected to remain popular for years. For more details on the new formats summarized below, see Office Open XML.
