How do I convert my files to a format that is compatible with SharePoint?

SharePoint 2013 requires Microsoft Office files to be in the format .docx, .xlsx, .pptx

If your file is not in these formats you will need to convert them

You will need to be on a computer with an up to date version of Microsoft Office to convert your files (Office 2010 or 2013)

  • Open your file in Word, Excel or PowerPoint as appropriate
  • Go to File and choose Convert:
  • A new version of your file will created in the latest file format. Your existing file will remain unchanged.
