Being a user of an older version of MS Word, I often get frustrated with the .docx format file. If you don’t have the newer versions to handle this format, you’re often left struggling to search for ways to open and edit the .docx document.
Today I found a simple and painless method to open and edit these files.
Microsoft has a compatibility pack for the program. Simply download, and install. Viola! You can now open, read, and edit files.
Users of the Microsoft Office XP and 2003 programs Word, Excel, or PowerPoint—please install all High-Priority updates fromMicrosoft Update before downloading the Compatibility Pack.
