    I'm using Office 2007 but just realized that I can't open docx files or
    powerpoint files sent by another user using 2007. However, when they saved it
    in Word 2003 format, I could read. Why is that?

    Any advice? Thanks

  2. What happens when you try to open them? Do you get an error message? What
    does it say (exactly please)?
