    Yes, you get that error, oddly enough, because the file was created by a newer version of Microsoft Office. You cannot open a 2007 office file in 2003. You must use the Save As... command in 2007 and select office 2003 file in the dropdown box.

Problem with section numbers not being linked in a word document that I'm updating using word 2007. The original document was created with an earlier version of Microsoft word.


When you create or open and edit a (.docx) document in Microsoft Word 2007, the Save As option gives you the opportunity to save it as a the (.doc) document in the formats of older versions of Word.

If it is not already too late, try to recover (using the AutoRecovery function built-into Microsoft Word 2007) , the earliest and most error-free version of the document in question you can recover and then use Save As, rather than Save to make an experimental copy of the document in an older Microsoft Word format.

Another option to consider is to download and install the free Office Suite Application Open Office, which can open, edit and manage many Microsoft Office documents and then copy and paste the most error-free version of the document in question into the appropriate Open Office Program and then see what sort of job the Open Office Word Processor makes of handling the tricky formatting.

For the future, as a general rule, whenever editing any document that contains complex formatting, always remember to start by copying and pasting the text of the original document into a new blank document (remembering to close the original document so you don't accidentally toggle between the two). Then your experiments could be conducted on a copy of the document, rather than the original, enabling you to repeat the method and continue creating experimental copies freely, until you have developed a workable strategy for dealing with the formatting issues.

Furthermore, remember to always use the Save As function, giving the experimental documents distinct and varying names (test.doc1, test.doc2, test.doc3 etc.) so you can keep track of your progress in mastering the formatting issues, then each document you save, is a copy, leaving the original document unchanged and available as a template for further experimentation, if necessary.

Unable to create pfd with word 2007 document


That is normal, Word 2007 cannot create PDF documents, it can only save files on PDF but, being PDF non his own format, it will lose document format, and may not display pdf.

To create PDF you need the full version (not the free acrobat reader) of adobe acrobat, or a different adobe software (eg illustrator) that manages PDF.

Has the powerpoint document been saved as an office 2007 document or as a prior version? in office 2007 in order to open it in 2003 it must be saved as a prior version of office. You can download a patch to read newer versions, but that is not always the most reliable process.

Save as Office 2003 or XP (or earlier) not as 2007 (which creates a .docx [note the x!] file which is different from a .doc file and which cannot be read by any other program than Office 2007 -which most people do not have)

This is probably your problem.

I have had no problem in saving to .doc and transferring files to other people.

Powerpoint 2007 problems


Hi, If the files were created in a lower version then when you open them in the newer version you are usually asked if you wish to convert them if this does not happen and you wish to retain the file in its earlier version then make sure when you go to save it that you use the "Save As" option instead of "Save" because you must choose the lower version format from the "Save As Type" box underneath the "Filename" box.
Let me know how you go.
