Project Upgrade, Options Dialog Box

Use the Project Upgrade page for the following two purposes:

  • To select the default format for documents in upgraded document-level solutions.

  • To set the option that controls whether the Visual Studio Conversion Wizard automatically upgrades 2003 add-in project templates to 2007 add-in project templates (if the 2007 Microsoft Office system is installed).

To access this page, on the Tools menu, click Options. Expand the Office Tools folder, and then click Project Upgrade.

Office 2007 Open XML Format

Select this option to convert the document of the document-level customization to the Office Open XML format. This is the default format for all documents in the 2007 Microsoft Office system.

The Office Open XML format provides developers and end users with the following benefits:

  • Compact files.

  • Improved damaged-file recovery.

  • Better privacy and more control over personal information.

  • Better integration and interoperability of business data.

  • Easier detection of documents that contain macros.

For more information, see Introduction to new file name extensions and Office XML Formats.

Office 2007 binary file format

Select this option to save your files in a binary file format. You should convert the format of the document to the Office Open XML format unless you have a specific reason to use the binary format.

Prompt for file format during upgrade

Select this option if you want the Microsoft Office Document Upgrade Settings dialog box to appear when you run the Visual Studio Conversion Wizard to convert a document-level customization. The Microsoft Office Document Upgrade Settings dialog box enables you to select the file format that you want to apply to the document in the document-level customization.

Clear this option if you do not want the Microsoft Office Document Upgrade Settings dialog box to appear. The Visual Studio Conversion Wizard automatically applies the default document format (which is specified by the option buttons on the Project Upgrade page) to any document-level customization project that you upgrade.

Always upgrade to installed version of Office

Select this option if you have the 2007 Microsoft Office system installed and you want 2003 add-in projects to be upgraded to 2007 add-in projects.

Clear this option if you have the 2007 Microsoft Office system installed, but do not want 2003 add-in projects to be converted to 2007 add-in projects. Because the 2007 Microsoft Office system can host a 2003 add-in, you can continue to develop and test 2003 add-ins even though you do not have Office 2003 installed.

NoteNote:

This option does not apply to document-level customizations.
