Hey guys! Hope you all well!

Can you guys advice me on something, I have several hundred pc's at work and most of them has xp on them, and then some have 2007 and then of course the fat cats (bosses) have vista. Yeah I know everyone should be on the same OS but that's a fight I'm currently engaging!

So does anyone ou there know of a good converter patch or something that I can upload to all these diffrent OS machines. As some of the word docs in all that had been created in all the various OS dont want to open since they not compatible.

CHeers! :)

If it only a Word document compatibility problem, all you have to do is ask the fat cats to save their Word documents in .doc in lieu of .docx. You can even set this up as default in Word Options > Save.
