Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Examining the difference in file types, part of Migrating from Office 2010 to Google Apps.
- Google Docs contains its own format…of word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations.…Those files have their own file extensions…that are different than their Microsoft Office counterparts.…A Microsoft Office document that can…be converted to a Google Doc will have…the file extension .docx or .doc.…A Google Doc file ends with the extension….gdoc, g doc.…However, even if the files have the same name…you'll be able to tell the difference by the icon…when browsing your files online.…
I'm going to switch to a list view so that you can see…the file names a little more clearly and the icons.…Here you can see a Google Doc icon,…while underneath it is a Microsoft Word icon.…Also, Google Doc files won't have…a visible extension online, such as this New Hire doc.…Here you can only see that the Word document…has a visible extension.…It's got a file extension of .docx.…An Excel file has an extension….xls, or .xlsx.…
That can be converted to Google Sheets.…For PowerPoint presentations, files that have the extension….ppt or .pptx…
