Microsoft Office 2007 has been introduced with a huge pile of fixes, features and an attractive look, no doubt indeed. The new “docx” format (Microsoft Open Office XML format) in MS Office 2007 is claimed to be a better version of the legendary “doc” format. The docx format also comes along with an issue that it is only compatible with MS Office 2007 and not with the older versions of the product, not even with OpenOffice, Lotus 123, or NeoOffice.
For those who are using the older version of MS Office, you can very easily convert the docx files into the desired format with this free online conversion service www.zamzar.com. You can also convert a wide variety of other file types like,
- Document formats
- Image formats
- Music formats
- Video formats
- Compressed formats
- CAD formats
OR, you can download the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats from the Microsoft website to expand the functionality to your older versions of MS Office.
