I've run into this problem twice in the last two days. My office consists mainly Win 98 OS and a 97 Office suite (microsoft) and Office 2000. Someone sent in a doc that was edited in word xp and now we cannot open it. Is this possible? I am assuming that office xp is backward compatible through most word versions, let alone word 2000. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

I do believe that there is an option to save in Office 97/2000 format when the document is saved in Office XP I would suggest that you have them save the file in this backward compatable format.

If this does not work you could always save it in Rich-Text Format (.rtf). This will keep your formatting and will open in almost anything.
