Microsoft Office Viewer Plugins

How can I view Microsoft Office files if I do not have MS Office software?

Students who do not have Microsoft Office software or those that are using alternative Office-like application suites, such as MS Works, WordPerfect, or Lotus, may have difficulties viewing some MS Office files. Having MS Office software available to you is the recommended solution as it is the preferred and supported application suite for CPCC and Distance Learning @ CPCC. For those users that do not have and/or do not plan to purchase MS Office, we recommend using free "viewer" plug-ins available from Microsoft's web site.

Below we have provided links to each MS Office application's free viewer. Additional application and file viewers are available through the "downloads" area of Microsoft's web site.
