how to converting microsoft office formats to google formats

When you upload a Word document, Excel spreadsheet, or PowerPoint presentation to Google Drive, you have the option of converting them to the equivalent formats in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.


Microsoft Office formats that can be converted include

1)Word (.doc,.dcx)

2)Excel (.xls, .xlsx)

3)PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx)


Converting these formats not only lets you edit them in Docs/Sheets/Slides, but also lets you collaborate on them with other people


There are some drawbacks, however:

1)Microsoft formatting may be stripped out or replaced with formatting elements that look quite different in Google applications. This is not much of an issue for a simple report or spreadsheet, but it can be a big problem for brochures, presentations, and other files that have sophisticated formatting.


2)Some features available in Microsoft Office are not available in the equivalent Google format, or are implemented much differently. Examples include Track changes and comments.


3)If the file needs to be brought back into Microsoft Office, another conversion process will have to take place using Google’s Download as feature.


Conversion can take place automatically during the upload process. Alternately, you can select the uploaded file in Drive and use one of the following methods to convert it:


1)Right-click over the selected file and choose Open with.

2)Click the More Actions icon (which looks like three vertical dots) at the top to the screen and select the option to open it in Google Docs/ Sheets/ Slides.

3)Preview the file, then select the Open with option.
