How to Open Microsoft Office 2007 files in Older Versions of Office?

Microsoft Office 2007 (officially called 2007 Microsoft Office System) is undoubtedly a necessary software suite for home, offices, and various other fields providing tools, templates, presentations and more to help you and get things done in a better way and easier. There are basically two ways to open Microsoft office 2007 files. One is the Harder way and another is the easier way.

So first one is the harder way, Around on January 30, 2007, Microsoft released a new version of its Office package, called Microsoft Office 2007. With this package of Microsoft Office 2007, they introduced a new set of file formats .xlsx, .pptx, and .docx, which are all not compatible with previous Microsoft Office versions like office 2003, 2000, etc. If somebody sends you a Word 2007 document through mail or some other way and you use older versions of Microsoft Word , an error message occurs. So to get rid of this error message, I've found a fix called Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats which can be find here

The above Micrsoft Office plugins enables you to Open, edit, and save documents, workbooks, and presentations in older versions of Microsoft Office 2000, 2003, or XP without any work on your part. Just make sure that your office has the latest Service Pack installed - either SP3 for Office 2000 and XP, or SP1 for Office 2003. Please take a special care to read the overview on that page.

Note: If you use Microsoft Word 2000 or Microsoft Word 2002 to read or write documents containing complex scripts, please see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925451 for information to enable Word 2007 documents to be displayed correctly in your version of Word.

Ok friends, Here is an easier way. If you feel that the above method is complicated for you and you just need to convert just a single .docx file, get your mouse over docx-converter.com. Simply, Upload your file, select your preferred format (.doc is just one choice), and enter your email address. In a moment, you should get a note containing a link to download the converted file. It’s a free service. So enjoy it!
