Did you know that even if you do not have Microsoft Office installed on your system that you can still view files that are created with that suite of programs?
What you need is the various Office File Format Viewers:
- PowerPoint Viewer
- Excel 2007 Viewer
- Word File Viewer Download
- Visio 2010- Visio Viewer
- Visio 2007 Viewer
You can also grab the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats and that will allow you to open Office documents created in the most recent version of Office in older versions of the same programs.
