    Default OpenOffice.org .odp in MS Office?

    How can I open an OpenOffice.org (2.?) file in MS Office (2007)?

    While I use Linux at home, here at work I use MS Office 2007 and received an .odp file (supposed to be an Impress file) form somebody I'm working with on a Linux presentation.

    Is there a plug-in or something which would allow me to open this file in Office without having to install OpenOffice.org? I haven't found one in the Microsoft site.

    If I am able to open/edit/save the file and maintain the .odp format that would be great!

    As I understand it, it's coming in the 2009 service pack for Office 2007.

    In the meantime, download OO for Windows and use that to convert the file to a format MS Office can read.

    Well they will be obliged to put it in their new Office I think. OpenOffice uses the standard format so every OS should support it. (and will)

    2009 I believe will be the year with the update... But with m$ you never know

    I hope Microsoft would include it even if they have the focus (agreement) for interoperability with Novell.
