Hi @Meenu,

Can Libre open all files created by MS Office and vice versa?

Short answer: Not all (e.g. LibreOffice can't open MS-Access database files directly, and I believe that LO has more extensive support for ODF 1.2 + OpenFormula than MS-Office).

Just wanted to know the compatibility between the two

Longer answer: In most cases, compatibility is possible. The latest versions of MS-Office support the ODF 1.2 file formats, and LibreOffice supports most features of both the legacy binary formats (.doc, .xls, .ppt) as well as the newer XML-based formats (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) used by MS-Office.

Are you looking for tips on interoperability between the two office suites?
