Office file interoperability

Adobe ColdFusion provides interfaces to work with PDF, Adobe Flash, and Adobe Connect. ColdFusion 9 extended the integration support to OpenOffice and Microsoft Office application formats such as Excel, PowerPoint, and SharePoint.

Office interoperability supports both OpenOffice and Apache POI libraries (see for information on Apache POI). OpenOffice libraries support conversion of all Office file formats, including Word documents to PDF. When you use the cfdocument, cfpresentation, or cfspreadsheet tags to convert Office files, the tags first search for an OpenOffice installation.

If an OpenOffice installation is not found, POI libraries are used. POI libraries support conversion of all office files except Word documents.

See Supported Office conversion formats for the complete list of supported Office conversion formats.
