    Word 2000/2002 compatibility (2000-SR1/2002)

    Are 2002 and 2000 fully compatible in terms of sharing documents? I have a document that was saved in W 2002 that behaves oddly in W 2000 (a table is not visible but shows up when doc is printed, top 1-2 rows of another table won't print, can't print preview, can't use Print Layout view).

    Thanks.

    I haven't yet opened my Word 2002. That said, Word 2000 has a checkbox option to disable features not compatible with Word 97, which I have checked. It helps tremendously and surprisingly little is lost in terms of function. I would hope that Word 2002 would have something similar.

    BKE,

    I wouldn't be surprised. Word 2002 supports a few new features that Word 2000 doesn't, watermarks for example. May I suggest taking a look at "Word 2002: Adding a new version of Word to your document creation, collaboration, and conversion work" from <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsystems.com/publications.htm>http://www.microsystems.com/publications.htm</A>. It provides some information about opening Word '02 documents in lower versions.

    Cheers,
    Rex

    Thanks, Chas. I will see if I can locate such a feature in 2002.

    That check box does NOT eliminate all non-Word 97 features in Word 2000 documents.
