Microsoft uses a new document format by default in Office 07 (.docx instead of .doc). A lot of people have ran into this problem, mostly because Microsoft didn't even care to tell you. They also fail to let you know that you can still save documents as .doc to ensure compatibility with previous versions of Word.

What they do offer though, is a converter (in the form of an update/patch) so you can open your docx files in previous versions of Office.

Click on the link to get it.

Hope it helps.
Thanks for the info on the file conversion, this has been driving me mad for ages and now resolved!!! STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
