Microsoft Word 2003 save files with extension .doc, Excel 2003 with .xls and PowerPoint with .ppt but Microsoft Word 2007 save files with extension .docx, Excel 2007 with .xlsx and PowerPoint with .pptx.Therefore,there arises  compatability issue when you try to open MS Office 2007/2010 in MS Office 2003.Microsoft provide a free compatability pack known as Fileformatconverters to resolve this issue.
