Using Office 2007 documents


Starting with Office 2007 there is a new format of the data files, based on the Open XML file formats. At the same time the filename extensions have changed.

The Excel and Access data files are often a source of product data for label printing in NiceLabel software. In order to gain access to the Office 2007 data files, the computer must have the necessary system components installed. Without the proper drivers no application can open and read the Office 2007 data files.

The data components are installed with Microsoft Office. If you do not have the Office installed, you can download just the data components.

Note: the data components are also not installed with 64-bit Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, so you have to install them manually.


You can already access the Office 2007 data files if you have Office 2007 installed on the same computer as NiceLabel software. If you do not have Office 2007 installed, but still need to access the data files, you must install the necessary data connectivity components.

To install the data connectivity components, do the following:

  1. Visit Microsoft Download Center at the following address:
  2. Download the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components.
  3. Read the installation instructions on the page.
  4. Install the components.
