I am still using Word 2003, but am getting more and more documents from people who have upgraded to Word 2007, and cannot open them. I understand there may be an "adapter" available so that Word 2003 users can open "docx" documents from Word 2007. Does anyone know how to do this?

Does File Converter Pack have to be installed BEFORE installing Compatibility Service Pack 1 (OR) will just installing Compatibility Service Pack 1 do the trick ????
Not clear in MS Promo.

Kindest Regards,

FileFormatConverters.exe is the file name of Office Compatibility Pack

I had to do this at work, you should be OK just running the pack, then re-booting for good measure.
