Hi Lee, I have recently experienced the same thing. When Excel 2007 or later opens an Excel 97-2003 .xls file, there are major issues of speed. The file is opened in compatibility mode. The best thing to do would be to open the file, then save as (keep the same name if you like) an Excel 2007 .xlsx document (or .xlsm document if there are macros). Close the file, then reopen it, and the compatibility mode issue will be gone. You can now use the newly saved file as a normal Excel 2007 file. Hope this helped.

In order to view a Word 2007 document in Word 2003, you need to save the document in Word 2003 format while in Word 2007. If you dont have a copy of Word 2007, there are a number of ways of getting around the problem:
1. You can send it to a friend who has Word 2007 and ask them to convert it for you.
2. You can open a free Windows Live account at www.live.com and read it in there.
3. You can open a free Google docs account at www.google.com and convert it in there.
Office Live and Google docs are competitive online office applications that allow you to upload a document into the "cloud" and open it using an online word processor.
You HAVE to use Microsoft Explorer or Firefox (I think) to get into Windows Live - it does not permit Google Chrome and Safari (I think). It also does not permit you to save the file in 2003 version.
If you use Google Docs, all you have to do is upload it and then download it as a Word document. Google can only format files into Word 2003 format... but you mat lose a bit of the formatting.
Hope this helps
A file made using a 2007 version of MS Office will not be opened or recognized by a lower version such as 2003 and 2004. If you are using an Office 2007 version and want to open the file in a lower version. Select the option Word 97-2003 document when saving the document or file .
The problem is with the format in which office 2007 saves its documents for eg in 2003 it saves as .doc extension and in 2007 it saves as docx extension. Any document typed on 2007 and saved as compatible mode for earlier version i.e. 2003 will be opened in 2003 but the same cannot be opened in 2007 if typed on 2003. Your solution is that either you will have to install office 97-2003 on your pc (it accepts both the packages) or your instructor will have to install 2007 on his pc.
Office 2007 will open 2003 word documents. Use open , to the bottom right pick 97-2003 docs, it will show only theses documents. Click open and the document will open. Your Instructor might have Microsoft Works if Document does not ope. The i nstructor should download compatibility software from Microsoft for Office 2007 and load. Then He could use save as a 2007 document.
Hope this helps?
What your Boss means is a patch for your Word 2003 so that you are able to open his Word 2007 documents. In the 2007 Office system Microsoft changed the file format .doc to .docx (An XML based document file). Word 2003 doesn't understand that since al previous versions uses the plain .doc format.
