    o2k/xp compatibility issuese (02k)

    I was wondering if there are any known compatibility issues between office 2000 and office xp./ In an office setting, if files were transferred between users who had different versions- would there be problems with the 2000 user not being able to view/perform on the document created/edited in office xp and vice versa?

    I don't know the answer to your question but I'm keen to find out and add Office 97 file compatibility to the question as well.

    there are no compatiblity issues. formats did not change between 2000 and 2002.

    For 97 to 2000/2002, there may be an issue with access files, the format changed with access 2000.

    Remember that there is more to using the two together than just file compatibility. Some of the new features may not work with the previous version. I'm trying to figure out now what happens when you use Send for Review from XP to 2000 and return - anyone have any experience with that (or can even tell me how it's supposed to work??) Thanks

    File format compatibility and application functionality are not the same thing at all. You have to assume that any feature new to XP will not work with 2000. That's been true with every version of Office so far, not just with XP. Documents can be shared, but you won't be able to use features that aren't available in both of them because they simply won't translate.
