When you goto save a file in Office 2007 you need to change it to save in Office 98-03 format which is .doc , Office 2007 use's .docx by default.

To save it in the .doc format , simply click "Save As" , type in the filename in the box as you normally would....then underneath it is a drop down box, click on that and change it to the .doc


That will get you working!

Docx file is the default file format for MS word 2007 and 2010. If you have those application then you can open it easily. If you have the 2003 and below version, you will need to download the Office 2007 compatibility pack and install it to your PC then you can open the docx file

How to open office 2007 files into Office 2003?


Today tip will help you to resolve the compatibility issues between the Office 2003 and Office 2007. Because all programs in office 2003 used the old file extensions for its different programs. For example Word 2003 saved files with extension .doc, Excel 2003 with .xls and PowerPoint with .ppt. but on the other office 2007 used the new file extensions for its different programs. For example Word 2007 saved files with extension .docx, Excel 2007 with .xlsx and PowerPoint with .pptx. Now the problem is that when you will try to open office 2007 files into office 2003 and you will not open the file due to compatibility issues between both office versions. Microsoft provides a free compatibility pack to convert office 2007 documents to the office 2003 format. There are many third party free converter are available but here we are using Microsoft office compatibility pack.

Follow the given steps to download free Microsoft compatibility pack and install it.

To use this feature, you will need to be logged into your computer with administrative rights.

Visit the following link to download the Microsoft compatibility pack:

In my PC Office 2003 is installed. Now sometimes I received Word & Excell 2007 files which is not opening in my PC. Can you tell me without installing Office 2007 how can I convert those docx and xlsx...


You don't have to convert the .docX or .xlsX to view in MS Office 2003, just install the "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats" and you should be able to open files, created or saved as the MS Office 2007 format.

If you need to edit the files you can too, but you will saved it in the MS Office 2003 formats.

Hope it helps.

How to know if a document is in word 97 format? I have microsoft word 2002 in my pc. is it in word 97 format too?


MS Word files have .doc extension (Word 97-2003 Format). With Word 2002, you can open and edit Word 97 files as well. Since launch of MS Office 2007, the files have the extension .docx. These files can be opened with earlier versions of MS Word (97, 2002, 2003 etc) by installing the compatibility pack, which is available at Microsoft Official Site.

Hope this answers your question. Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

I currently have microsoft office professional 2007 trial version which has expired. If I don't want to order it and just go back to my 2003 version can I just cancel the 2007 version? Will it just convert...


If you still have the installation CD for Microsoft Office 2003 and the key that goes with it, you can un-install the Trial version of Office 2007 and install Office 2003. Files saved Office 2007 format are not redable with Office 2003.

To preserve your files (the ones made with Office 2007) you must go through the following procedure:
  1. Open each file with the application that created it (Word, Excel, Powepoint, or what have you)
  2. If it its a Word 2007 file save it in Word2003 format
  3. If it is an Excel 2007 file save it in the Excel 2003 format.
  4. Etc.
This is only necessary if you intend to modify them at some later time.
If you only want to read (not modify) them you can still do that because Microsoft offers a free Word viewers.

Other free software you can use to open files created with Office 2007 is OpenOffice.org 3. You might lose some formatting but the files will be accessible to you.

To open Microsoft Office Word 2007 .docx or .docm files with Microsoft Office Word 2003, you need to install the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint File Formats and any necessary Office updates. By using the Compatibility Pack for the 2007 Office system, you can open, edit some items, and save Office Word 2007 documents in previous versions of Word.

If you mean that will you be able to open files created with Word 2003 with Word 2007 then you do not need to worry about compatibility.
Just uninstall the Office 2003 and install the Office 2007. You will be able to open old files without any problem.

In which we can open .docx files


You can open docx extension files only with MS Office 2007. If you wish to open it in earlier versions you have to save it again in compatible mode. Click on File (top left most corner with the logo), Save As, Word 97-2003 Document. Just using Save option will save your document as "docx" and not "doc" document.
