OpenOffice 3.0.1 build 184.108.40.206 (SUSE branded from respository), openSUSE 11.1,
KDE4.2.1 release 106.
Tried for first time today since going to version 3.0.1 from openSUSE repository to save a document as a .docx That option no longer exists in the save as menu. I have a X86_64 system. The old odf-converter (i586) is still installed.
Any help appreciated
After seeing this post, I tried this myself. I too couldn’t find this option. I also tried the Microsoft XML format but it gave me an error.
I am not bothered about this anyway because I will never send anyone a file with .docx extension.
I tried reading a file I received from someone in this format and it was correctly reading it.
Save as .docx has never been available. It is planned for Go-OO 3.1.
Use Save as .doc.
Not totally true, Novell had a odf-converter program that worked fine on OpenSUSE 10.3.and 11.0 32-bit machine. I now have a 64 bit system and the i586 version does not work with the 64 bit OOo.
Is there a repo to get a beta of OOo 3.1 or should I see if its available on OO0 website.

Thanks looks like 3.1 is scheduled for release today if its on time. I check
opensuse factory. I’m in the process of updating my new test system to 11.1
from 11.0. I have been using 11.1 for a while in production. Old test sytem
died a slow death.
Thanks for your response.
