    Converting Office files in Enterprise to newer version w/o loosing history

    Scott Douglas

      OK Whos going to save my butt. Heres the deal. Our server has lots-o-files in .xls and .doc format. There is versions and revisions tied to these legacy files. Users want so save into the newer .xlsx or .docx format, while maintinging the history of the file. I was able to use convert inside Word to do a .doc to .docx file, but Excel is giving me grief. Is this the correct way

       

      check out file

      click convert inside Word

      Save back into same path on server as .docx

      check in

      .doc file is replaced by .docx file and maintains versions and history.

       

       

       

      Thanks

      Scott
