Word 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We installed Office 2007 Small Business on one machine in our office.  The Word documents created by this machine are saved as 97-2003 documents so that the rest of the office can share these docs.  However, the 2003 machines cannot read the docs created by the 2007 machine - the lines within the letter are on top of each other causing the document to be unreadable - it appears to be a spacing issue.  When you open the letter in 2007 it looks fine - just not when you open the same document from a 2003 machine.  Has anyone else had this issue?

  • Download and intstall the compatability patch for Office 2003.  It will allow you to view, open edit etc office 2007 docs from Office 2003 without issue.  It is better than saving in compat mode.  Role it out with GPO will really simplify for you.


    Installing the Compatibility Pack

    By installing the Compatibility Pack along side of Microsoft Office XP, or Office 2003, you will be able open, edit, save, and create files using the Open XML Formats new to the 2007 Microsoft Office system. Office 2000 users, as well as users of Windows 2000 SP4 and later, can convert Open XML Formats to binary file formats from within Windows Explorer.
