Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack Free

Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack

Starting with Office 2007, Microsoft has added new file formats for Word, Excel and Power Point applications (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) to reduce the size of the files and also improve security and reliability.

The only problem is that those who use an earlier version of Office (2000, XP or 2003) won’t be able to open these new formats without the assistance of Compatibility Pack.

Having this add-on  installed on your machine that is running an older release of Microsoft Office, you’ll be able to open, edit and save any file that has been created with one of the new formats.

Bottom line, Compatibility Pack is a must have if you want to open and modify files with .docx, .xlsx and .pptx extensions, without having to upgrade to a newer Office version.
