how to convert open office odp to be used in MS office

we  havve a few customers who use open office and are not prepared to save them to anything useable.


I have open office on a spare machine and just convert them for now but its a bit clumsy

is there a bulk converter or something a normal user could use?

or even better a converter actually for office  had a look but cant se any converters in this direction, plenty of word to open office though.

Hi mhamer,

I could not find any odp file converters, so it looks like you'll be stuck converting them yourself (unless you can convince your customers to change - its amazing how quickly people will respond if they are told that no one can read/use their documents!).

How about setting up an Open Office macro to:
Open the file (in open office)
File --> Save as
Change file type to .doc (or whatever you need)

This way you should save yourself alot of time instead of doing it manually each time.

I'm afraid i can't help you in the actually setting up of the macro, but atleast its a possability
