How To View Word 2007 With Word 2003

July 14th, 2011

Hello,

If you have Word 2003 and a friend sends you over a file created in Word 2007 you’re going to have a problem, because Word 2003 was made a few years before the 2007 version it can’t understand the newer file format. The problem does not occur when a 2003 file is opened by Word 2007, the newer version of Word is backwards compatible.

If you want to open Word 2007 documents with Word 2003 you’ll need a update and it’s provided free of charge by Microsoft. The update is a small download and it’s simple to install.
