hey! If i have saved a file on MS-office 2007 and i want to open it on another pc where office 2003 is installed, i am unable to open that file. The only way i know to open that file is to first convert it by using a converter and then MS_Office 2007 will open it. Do you know another way to open those files if the converter is not available? thanks

Hi ,
3 main choices for this:
1 Save the file using the MSO 2007 computer, into the previous file format.....doc. rather than .docx
2 Dowload the file converter and install on the MSO 2003 machine
in my view any computer running MSO 2003 needs to have the converter installed as a matter of course.
3 Use an open source product...open office>>http://www.openoffice.org/

The answer is #2. :) The compatibility pack gives older Office products native capability to open Office 2007 and newer files. It is seemless for the most part.
