The Compatibility Pack for Office 2003 to Office 2007

This document explains general information about the Microsoft Office 2007 compatibility pack.

 

In response to complaints about backward compatibility, Microsoft has created a Compatibilty Pack that allows Office 2003 programs to view and edit documents created in Office 2007. As more users upgrade to the newest versions, they may still want to share their work with Legacy users. This overcomes the issue that the default save format in Office 2007 documents is different than that of past applications, and allows for seamless sending and receiving of information.
