    Advertisement



    Does anyone know if BES will be updated to support opening/viewing of the new Office 2007 file extensions (.DOCX and .XPS)?

    they've introduced/forced this new format upon us, which is incompatible w/ previous office versions until you install an add-on.

    are you using the DOCX extension or DOC? We all know DOC and XLS files work. DOCX and XLSX are the new office 2007 extensions we're talking about.

    I just tested it, using Office Word 2007 (testing.docx) and sending myself an email. Received the email on my BlackBerry (email sent using Outlook 2007) and I can open the email, but no option for the attachement...

    Hopefully RIM is about to address this, albeit, it should have been addressed already...

    I've been dealing with this at work forthe last day or two.

    THe attachment service in BEs 4.1 currently won't recognise or render Office 2007 documents for example. Even if you set Word 2007 to save in Office 97-2003 compatible format, then save your document and send that, the BES still doens't appear to be able to render it (when you get the mail on your BB, you can see it has an attachment, but when you go to retrieve it returns and unreconized format error).

    We asked RIM when they were going to introduce support for 2007 and they said sp4, subject to change though.

    none of these links address the fact that Office 2007 (not Exchange) uses new file extensions.

    Re: Office 2007 files and BES Attachments

    Now that Office 2007 is fully deployed at my office, I'm getting more and more of these docx, xlsx, and pptx files emailed to me that I'm unable to view on my BB. Has there been any news of support for these new Office xml-based formats on the BB? Will it matter if I'm using BES or BIS (I'm on BIS)?

    Any update on this? My office changed to Office 2007. I can't open the new xlsx files they send me. Thanks.

    Docs to go will have it once they start to support Blackberrys. I used it for my Windows Smartphone when I had one.
