Access MSOffice 2007 docs with MSOffice 2003

No comments

Generally whenever we create Documents in MSOffice 2007,we are unable to open those files with MSOffice 2003 and earlier versions...

Here is the solution for that problem...

Your client just emailed a Microsoft Word 2007 document ending with a .docx extension but you have no clue about how to open and print the file or convert from docx to .doc and other text formats.

You can convert .docx to .doc or extract text from .docx files online using the free or service. Unlike the Microsoft compatibility pack, these docx to doc conversion services do not require copy of Microsoft Office.

It is also possible to open and edit a .docx file in OpenOffice or StarOffice using the free Open XML Translator from SourceForge which converts .docx Word documents to .odf and vice versa.


You need no hacks to read those Word 2007 files (docx) files without Office 2007.

Just mail all the Office 2007 document(s) to your own Gmail account and click the View as HTML link near the email attachment to convert those files into text / HTML format that can be viewed in the web browser itself.

This easy conversion method retains the document formatting (no images though) and works with docx, pptx and xlsx Open XML formats
