Known Issues with Microsoft Products

Note: patches and updates from Microsoft or software vendors may resolve the issues listed.

Product Issue
Office 2007 applications (Word, Excel, etc)

By default, Microsoft Word will save documents in the new standard file format ending in .docx
This file format cannot be opened by older versions of Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word, including MS Office 2000, XP, 2003, etc.
If someone wishes to send a file to be opened by older versions of MS Office/Word, you must explicity save it in a compatible format using File -> Save As -> Save as Type .
This will occur similarily for other MS Office applications.

Older Office versions can get this update to work with the new Office XML format:
