    Yep, NetRyder is right, openoffice has what you need, and it can import M$ powerpoint files, too. give it a shot. EJ. :cool:

    It's really not that great, the possibilities are quite limited... anyway, I'll try OpenOffice! Thanks!

    In fact, OpenOffice.org is one-step ahead.
    Microsoft is going to switch to XML in Office 11, and XML is already the standard format in OO ;)

    It can also open all MS proprietary formats like .doc, .xls etc

    That's my favourite office suit for now... Open source and free, could it be better?
