BACK TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS

Microsoft Office just came out in a new version for 2013.  But some of us (Joy’s looking at you, Bob) haven’t upgraded Microsoft Word since 2003. This can be a problem when Joy sends Bob a file created in a newer version.

If Joy forgets to save a Word document in the “Doc” format; it automatically saves as a “Docx” file. Bob can’t open those. But after Bob installed the Microsoft Compatibility Pack, which is free from Microsoft, Docx files opened easily. If you Google “Microsoft Compatibility Pack,” it comes right up.
