convert Open XML files that were created in Office 2008 for Mac or Office 2007 for Windows

Open XML Converter allows you to convert Open XML files that were created in Office 2008 for Mac or Office 2007 for Windows so that you can open, edit, and save them in earlier versions of Office for Mac. Open XML Converter can convert Word documents, Excel workbooks, and PowerPoint presentations that are in the Open XML Format so that you can open and edit the files in Office 2004 for Mac and Office v. X for Mac. You can choose to convert and open one file, or convert a large number of files.

As of October 18, 2009, this software's version is 1.1.1.
I haven't been able to get AppFresh to recognize this software

I've only needed this a couple of times and it worked fine. I was pleasantly surprised months later, the second time I had to read a DOCX file, when I double-clicked it and it converted without me even having to think about finding the DOCX converter! :) Granted, as increasingly organizations standardize on Office 2007, this is going to be more and more necessary.

Actually the version I have is 0.2.1 Beta, Microsoft® Office Open XML Format Converter for Mac®, which shows up in the title and menu bars simply as "Office Converter."

I guess, if or when I encounter a document that doesn't convert right I'll think about updating it, or in any event, when this Beta version says it has expired.
