Hi, you can upgrade your office to 2007, the file will not be readable unless you do so, otherwise, you may advise your friend to re save the file on 79-2003 format and send it again.

Hi there,

Two options.

One. Upgrade to 2007. A bit on the spendy side.

Two. All office products have the ability to Save their documents (etc.) in a format readable by previous versions.

I would ask your friend to open the file, save as a Word 2003 Document and resend the file. No expense, fast, easy.

Best regards
Mike

Word 2003 2007 can't be viewed in word 2003


Hi
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 Peter

How do I open a docx file without it corrupting.


Docx file is the default file format for MS word 2007 and 2010. If you have those application then you can open it easily. If you have the 2003 and below version, you will need to download the Office 2007 compatibility pack and install it to your PC then you can open the docx file

My word 2003 doesnot allow to open downloads frommy word 2003


because microsoft has to keep chang the word file format to keep up with compression if one thing you can do is when using 2007 use the save as option and change the "save as type to" rich text format or just a word document

I have an expired trial version of office 2007, and i now use open office instead of word but when i save the files and email people cant read the new document


If you save the files in an Open Office format compatible with Office 2007, people with Office 2003 or older won't be able to read them. Save your documents in an Office 2003 format and they should be able to read them...unless they have Office 98, in which case they should get into the 21st century and update to 2003!

Word 2007 Patch


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.

I take it this is what you need:
[Microsoft Office 2007 Compatibility Pack]

With these you should be able to open the documents he sent you.

I hope this helps. Please rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

You can go to the office button at the top of Word. It is the big roubnd button. Then go to save as and in the save as type change it to word 97-2003 document .doc.
You can also click on the office button, then word options at the bottom. Next you would click on save and change the save as file format to Word 97-2003 and it would automatically save it in this format.
