Microsoft Office Integration

Microsoft Office integration natively pulls in files generated in the Microsoft Office Suite such as Microsoft Word documents and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. This feature can pull text from and perform type-specific activities on these files.

Supported File Types

Note: This feature does not support older, non-XML file types (.doc, .xls, .ppt, etc.).

How to Use

To make use of this feature, ensure that Microsoft Office is installed on the machine running Grooper Design Studio. Then open Design Studio and go to a batch with the desired Microsoft Office Suite file. Clicking on the file will display its contents. To perform an activity specific to the file type, right click on the file then select an activity from the sub-menu labeled with the file’s type.

Version Differences

In previous versions of Grooper, files from the Microsoft Office Suite had to be rendered to PDF in order to view contents and use activities more effectively. As of 2.9, rendering is no longer needed to view the contents of these files due to this feature.
