A friend has send me an 80 page .docx file. I have downloaded and installed the compatibility pack, but when I open the file it is still in gibberish.What am I doing wrong?I am onXP SP3 and still use Office 2000.
docx. files are created by Office 2007 and are not backwards compatible.You can download a converter or ask the person who sent it to you to re-send it in 2000 format.
Thanks: any converters to be recommended?
click hereif you read this document then it states that if you install word viewer 2003 then the compatability pack you should be able to read ***.docx files
Thanks I'll have a look at those.
The latest OpenOffice can read .docx files.However, you say you have the compatibilty pack... the whole purpose of this is to enable older versions of Office/Word to read .docx files. I wouldn't rule out a file corruption issue!Regards,Simsy
Ask the person to send the file so the file extension is *.doc. Its easy to do and all earlier versions of Office will be able to read it. David
