Microsoft changed the Office formats. .docx and .xslx files can't be opened by Office 2000. You can download an Office update that will allow you to open these files using the older versions of Office. Go to www.microsoft.com to find it.

Good Luck

To clarify, its the Office Compatibility Pack you are looking for that will do this.
