    My wife is running Word 2002. We installed the Word 2007 compatibility pack some time ago and it worked well - until a week or so ago, when it started to report that it was unable to open DOCX files which were arriving as attachments in Outlook. I uninstalled the pack, rebooted, then reinstalled the currently available version. No luck. Has anyone else run into this, of know of a fix?

    Any more detail to the message other than unable to open the file?

    Does the DOCX file contain features unique to Word 2007 that Work 2002 might not recognize?

    Is When you create a document in a right-to-left language or in a complex script language by using Word 2007, and then open the document in Word 2002 or in Word 2000, any right-to-left language text is reversed applicable?
