Office Binary Format Specifications Posted

As promised, Brian Jones has announced the posting of the Microsoft Office Binary Format specs in this blog posting.

Along with these formats we have also provided a few additional format specs:

  • Windows Compound Binary File Format Specification PDF | XPS
  • Windows Metafile Format (.wmf) Specification PDF | XPS
  • Ink Serialized Format (ISF) Specification PDF | XPS

So, if you are building applications on older versions of Office, or would like to manipulate those formats on a web server, you can read-up on them and begin coding!
