Recently Microsoft released Ms Office 2010, but most of them are still using MS Office 2003.They have not even upgraded to Ms Office 2007. Ms Office 2007 default file format are .pptx .xlsx .docx files. Ms office 2003 or other earlier versions doesn’t support this file format.Here I provide 3 easy solutions to open docx file format.
1. Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack
Microsoft released a tool named “Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack” ,Using this tool you can convert office 2007 files to the compactable file format for older versions.
OpenOffice is a multi-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux) and multi-lingual office suite which is compatible with all major office suites (i.e. Microsoft Office). It includes Writer (word processing), Impress (presentation), Math, Draw, Calc (spreadsheet), and Base applications.You can open and edit MS Office 2007 Docx file format in OpenOffice.Ubuntu Linux comes with OpenOffice Software.
3. DevVicky Word 2010
DevVicky Word 2010 is another freeware application that can also open DOCX formats. It is a lightweight application when compared to OpenOffice.org, and is much lighter when compared to MS Office as well. This is another cool way of opening Docx file format.
Its better you switch over to Ms Office 2007 or Ms Office 2010.
