Microsoft has failed in its first attempt to have its Office Open XML formats approved as an ISO standard after failing to win enough support from national voting bodies despite a recent upsurge in support.

ISO figures indicate that the company failed to gather either the two-thirds of Participating member votes or 75% of total member votes it required for OOXML to join the OpenDocument Format as an ISO-approved document format standard.
