Word 2007 Converter for Word 97

  chessman2 08:31 23 Nov 2007

Does anyone know if there is a converter for word 2007 to word 97 as I can't read the .docx files? I've looked on microsoft's site and they do one for word 2003, but alas I couldn't find one for us "oldies". Any help would be appreciated.

Apparently you can use the Open XML Translator for Open Office to be able to read and edit docx files with Open Office.

I haven't had a chance to try it in my OpenOffice yet because I've not received any docx files.

Sorry, I should have added this link for the converter as well click here~

It's not on the OpenOffice site.

Me again, ignore that, it seems that converter is only for the Novell version of OpenOffice.

Oops - not sure if it will work with Word 97.

Me yet again.

It seems I can install the Novell converter in Linux and it works, but I can't try the Windows version because I'm not running Windows, but it seems to suggest if the Linux version works there's no reason why the Windows version shouldn't work with bog standard OpenOffice.
