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.

Your best bet is to buy a newer version of Microsoft Works of Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office has a free plug in to read Works files.

However, if your goal is to spend no money, you might want to look at some of the free Microsoft Office alternatiove programs that can read Microsoft Works files.

One that can read Works files is LibreOffice at
http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

Or you can use an on-line converter like
https://secure.convert-doc.com/converters/wps-to-odt.html

to convert the WPS files to something else.

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.

I saved an .odt file from another computer and i can't open it in a 2003 microsoft word. what should i do to open the file?


Hi .odt files will not be opened by MS word as a default. Most likely MS Word does not have the latest service pack. For Windows 2003, download Office 2003 SP2 as a minimum (available from Microsoft)
Download, Install and reboot computer if required.
When PC starts, start up MS Word 2003 which will have SP2 installed.
Locate the ODT file and then double click it. As SP2 for Office 2003 is installed (or MS Word 2003) The file will now open. The formatting might be a little off, but for the most part, all the text will be there and you'll be able to edit and make changes as you see fit.

Wanting to convert ms word doc 2007 to 2003


Open the document in 2007, use the "save as" feature but select Word 200???? as your Type or Format you would like to save the document as, I woiuod create a folder Named 2003 word files, and put the newly saved as docs in there, so you will be able to use the same file name an not overwrite the 2007 files. That is ONLY a suggestion

My self rakesh,using 2007 microsoft word,how to convert the 2007 word format to 2003 format


Convert a document to Office Word 2007 The Word Convert command clears the compatibility options so that the document layout appears as it would if it had been created in Word 2007.
  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button default.aspx?assetid=za100771021033, and then click Convert.
  2. In the Microsoft Office Word dialog box, click OK.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To replace the original file with a file in the Office Word 2007 file format, click the Microsoft Office Buttondefault.aspx?assetid=za100771021033, and then click Save.
    • To save the original document in its original file format and create another document in the Office Word 2007 file format, click the Microsoft Office Button, click Save As, and then type a new name for the file.
    Note If the original .doc file is saved in a location other than your local drive, Word keeps the original .doc file and creates a new .docx file when you click Convert.
:)
