    version compatibility (2000/97)

    Lately I am having occasional problems opening attachments. One thing they appear to have in common is that they are from Word 2000, while I'm using Word 97. I know they're supposed to be compatible, but does anyone have similar experience? It doesn't happen with EVERY Word 2000 file, so I can't totally blame it on compatibility.

    Actually, you may well be able to blame it on compatibility. Certain features of Word 2000 are disabled or don't work correctly in Word 97, which means some documents may work just fine while others do not. One way to check this, and to at least be able to view the documents that you're sent , is to download the free viewer that Microsoft offers. This works for Word 2000 as well as for previous versions.
