Problem Opening Office Documents in Office 2003

Today I want to tell you about a common problem that you must have faced if you are still using MS Office 2003. When you tried to open the document created by Ms Office 2007, 2010 or 2013 by default this is in different extension and shows error while opening in lower version. To escape from this problem you either have to uninstall your MS Office package and upgrade to higher version (at least MS office 2007) or Ask the author of file to send a compatible file in Office 1997-2003 version.

But here is a best way that you can try without any cost and without any request.To open all types of Office Documents that are of created with higher versions of MS Office, you can download Office Converter. Microsoft has published it as Compatibility Pack for 2007 Office System.

You may follow the link to downnload Microsoft Office Document Converter.

  • Save Downloaded file to disk.
  • When download completes, run the executable file.
  • Proceed to installation.
  • When complete, reboot your system.
This will install all rendering engine in your Office 2003 and you can open your existing files as well as files with newer version.
