New File Format – Compatibility Issues with Earlier Office Versions
The new default file format is based on Open XML (Open Extensible Markup Language). The new format is indicated with an “x” at the end of the file extension. For instance, Word documents are .docx; Excel spreadsheets are .xlsx, etc. Users who have previous versions of Microsoft Office may not be able to open files in these new formats.
Resolution for Students using Office 2003 or Office XP
Download the Compatibility Pack from Microsoft. Installation of this Compatibility Pack will allow you to open, edit, and save files using these new file formats. This download requires that previously released updates for Microsoft Office have been applied. NOTE: You must have administrator access to your computer to install the update.
