open encrypted word 2003 file with word 2007



Word 2007 will not let me open Word 2003 files that are encrypted. Does
anyone know how to fix this?

What version of Word 2007? There were some issues with SP2 (and/or a
security patch) but I can't recall the details off the top of my head. There
was a hotfix which caused more problems, and ultimately another hotfix -
number 970924.

If this isn't your situation (and I'm not sure even this affected encrypted
2003 format documents), I have not heard of anything else. Are you sure you
have the correct password?
