Contrary to popular belief among users of Office 2003, you do not have to purchase Office 2007 docx to read.

For the sake of compatibility, Microsoft has made in November 2007 to provide a patch users can read and save documents in new formats with Office 2003.

This patch, called "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats", is downloadable for free from Microsoft.

Re: open docx with Office 2003

If you do not want to download, you can convert your docx in other formats (doc, pdf and html particular) on the site docx Converter.
http://docx-converter.com

Convert docx file for free ...

In Office 2007 Microsoft introduced a new file format called the Microsoft Office Open XML format (. Docx). This format is not compatible with older versions of Microsoft Word or with alternative operating systems like Linux or Mac OS X. Nor is it compatible with other word processing applications like OpenOffice, Lotus 123, or NeoOffice.

Docx-converter.com offers a portable solution for your compatibility needs. It will convert a Microsoft Office. Docx file into a simple html file. It strips out some of the formatting, but now supports bold, italic, and underlined text. Left, right, center, and justified alignment. Unicode characters. Tables. And more!
