Many of you are encountering students submitting assignments completed using MS Office 2007.  I had pushed the MS Compatibility pack last year so that you would not experience any difficulty opening these types of files (ex.  “docx” or “pptx”).  In the event that your computer did not get the compatibility pack installed, you may install it yourself from a link in the Teacher Folder called MS Office 2007 Compatibility File Converter:


Simply double click on the link and it will install a file converter.  Voila!  You shouldn’t have any more problems reading files from Office 2007.
