Docx files are Microsoft Word files that have been created using Microsoft Worrd 2007 in the XML format.

If you are using a previous version of Microsoft Word, you will need to install the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats.

After you download the program just run the executable.

You will now be able to open docx files in your version of Word.

How do you import docx to pages


HI David. docx files open naturally in Pages - you don't have to import them. Right-Click or Control-Clickon your docx file and you'll get the contextual menu. One of the options is 'Open With".
Choose that and you should get offered Textedit as the first choice and Pages as the second. Choose pages and that is it. Hopefully all subsequent docx files will open in Pages, but in case they don't, single click on one of them., go to the file menu and select 'Get Info' Near ther bottom is the 'Open with' selector. reset it to Pages and then make sure that the box underneatch that says 'Open all docx files with Pages' (or whatever the exact wording is) is checked.

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.

Problems with .docx files


For infomration on Office 2007 .DOCX file format, refer to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA100444731033.aspx

I use Office 2003, and have installed and currently employ the "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint File Formats" mentioned in article. This is, for the most part, seamless when reading in Office 2007 .DOCX or .PPTX files, for examples, in Office 2003.

Otherwise, in Office 2007, you can change and set your Word Options so that you can save files in a specific format, including a previous Office version to ensure compatibility.
See http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/11/25/how-to-change-default-file-saving-format-from-docx-to-doc-in-word-2007/

Hope this makes sense... Good Luck!
