This is a special Microsoft Word 2007 format with macros enabled. I'm not sure if Works supports the format at all. (Certainly, when I look at the Microsoft web site, it's not listed as supported on Works 7.0. Nothing newer showed up on their web site.)

Your possible work-arounds: check if Wordpad reads it (it can read .doc files but I haven't tried .docm files), download and install OpenOffice 3.0 (reads Office 2007 files, IIRC), try the Google cloud Word processor (I haven't tried this). If you only need to read the file, the Microsoft Word Viewer is a good bet. Download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=3657ce88-7cfa-457a-9aec-f4f827f20cac&displaylang=en . You may need to also add the Office compatability pack: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466 .

I hope this helps.

Gudpm po im asking about how to open my open offices file again..last feb 15 i open my company pc the file has corrupted... tnx.....


If your company was using MS Office 2003 then you're using MS Office 2007. Make sure you're saving the file in a compatible format. For example, if you've create a report on excel file using MS Excel 2007 then you should save the file in .xls (compatible format) instead of .xlsx (2007 format. In that case you can open your file on both versions. Also when you're saving other office files make sure it's in compatible format.

What is the meaning of X in the word DOCX?


The X stands for XML (Extensible Markup Language), which is the programming language behind the scenes in Office 2007 programs.
Previous versions of Word were based on binary data. Binary data is, by nature, prone to corruption, and "bloated."
By changing the background code, Microsoft was able to create new tools and features in Word 2007 that would not have been possible otherwise.

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.

Lose excel formatting when save as it in 97-2003 format


If you are using Excel 2007 and saving your workbooks in the 97-2003 format, you should get a message that appears that will let you know what formatting will not be compatable. If you click ok, then the computer will automatically adjust the formatting to the closest fit for the earlier version to be compatible. Once you save it to an earlier version, then reopen it in excel 2007, you will not get your formatting back.

Im using MS 2003... i just both this new pc for my house... my problem now we are using in the office MS 2007... all the my files now i cant open here in my house... i want to download MS 2007 to upgrade...


Office 07 default to 2 new extensions instead of the old .doc extension. 07 uses .docx or .docm (m is for documents containing macros).

If the document is just a standard one, you can go into file save as in 07 and save as.. 2000/03 compatible. 07 then saves the document with a .doc extension (this loses some of the nicer formatting 07 introduces but still looks ok). Then you can open the document at home.

If you cant rename the file as it is locked or something, then go here >

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA100444731033.aspx

And download the compatibility pack. This lets you open these .docx/m documents with 2000/03 office.
