    Hey to put it in simple terms word 2007 documents are saved with the .docx extension which is not compatible with earlier verions of word. To solve this problem when saving your documents save them with the .doc extensions which is compatible with Word 2000 in your case. (To do so when you select save as choose Word 97-2003 document)

    P.S. I am assuming that your problem is concerned with Word 2007. Needless to say that the same applies for all the other application in MS Office 2007.

    Hope that helps

    Stormy is right, I see so many Government departments here saying on job sites that their system is not compatible with Office 2007 and to send applications in a earlier office format, I would have through their IT department like the one I worked for would install the compatibility pack.

    Its from Microsoft web site and created by them so its safe, if you don’t have access permissions on your computer to install this I would contact your IT department since it is a work computer, so they can add it as an administrator, or install it on your work server if you are accessing the Office program from the server, I don’t know your set up.

    But because it’s a work computer I would at least make who ever is in charge of the computers aware of what you have put on, if you are able to, as any IT department needs to be aware for their records of any programs etc installed.
