I was wondering I have an Excel project that needs to be done I have MSW 2007 and the school uses MSW 2003 are the compatibly or is the a way for me to get MSW 2003 ( of course keeping my MSW 2007) and not messing up my computer thanks
MS Word 2003 documents are compatible with the 2007 edition, but the 2007 documents are not backwards compatible with MS Word 2003.
The reason for this is simple, abeit not obvioius. Word 2003 saves files as .doc, whereas Word 2007 saves files as .docx.
In order to open and use files formed in 2007, you'd click the Office icon in the top left (where you go to save), scroll down to "save as...", and then click "Word 97-2003 document". This will save the file as .doc instead of .docx without affecting the actual document.
Why are you using MS Word for an assignment in Excel?
