For users of Office 2000 - 2003, the Compatibilty Pack lets you convert Office 2007 (and newer)
formats without resorting to upgrading your version of Office. Check out the link, MS has the
info there.

another plus for MicroSoft.. ha ha ha.. they always change things on you.. get used to doing something, and they'll change it.. why not leave the WORD documents .doc? what would have been wrong with that? I, now, save my doc's as the old .doc.. no more .docx because not everyone has the newer WORD program to open them with..
JESUS”…… don’t leave EARTH without HIM!
