.crtx File Extension

Developer: Microsoft Corporation
File type: Office 2007 Chart Template File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .crtx. Files with the file extension .crtx can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .crtx files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .crtx file?

The Microsoft Office 2007 suite of word editing and document presentation development applications use data files as template files, and these files are appended with the CRTX extension. Also called Office 2007 chart template files, the data contained in these CRTX files refer to text and visual attributes or page layout elements implemented into charts and diagrams by the authors of those documents. These CRTX files can be used to integrate the same formatting elements and page layout or visual object attributes to newly created documents with the programs packaged into the Microsoft Office 2007 software. Grid line layout and formatting attributes, color options and text styling configuration settings among other details associated to a template document are stored as the content of these CRTX files. Microsoft Windows users can install the Microsoft Office 2007 software into their systems to create, open and edit the content of these CRTX files. Mac users also have alternative versions of some Microsoft Windows word processing and spreadsheet applications that can be used to view and edit CRTX files in Mac environments.

how to open a .crtx file?

Launch a .crtx file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .crtx file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .crtx files aren't yet associated with it.

Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office is an office suite of desktop applications, servers and services, released by Microsoft on August 1, 1989 for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Originally, the first version of Microsoft Office contained Microsoft Word, a word processor and was previously considered the main program in Office; Microsoft Excel, a spreadsheet program that originally competed with the dominant Lotus 1-2-3; and Microsoft PowerPoint, a popular presentation program for Windows and Mac.; a marketing term for a bundled set of applications. As years passed by, Office applications have grown significantly closer with shared features such as a common spell checker, Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) data integration and Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications scripting language. Microsoft also positions Office as a development platform for line-of-business software under the Office Business Applications brand. The current versions are Office 2010 for Windows, released on June 15, 2010; and Office 2011 for Mac OS X, released October 26, 2010.The new Office 2013 (version 15 of the Office suite) is reported to be released around December 2012.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .crtx files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .crtx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
