if a file is created in MS office 2003 , can open in office 2000 or office xp?????????

if not...then how will we make it compatible from office 2003 to office xp or 2000

Hi noor!

You should have minimal issues between Office 2000, XP, and 2003. I've got Office XP at home and 2003 at the office and move Excel and Word files and Access databases around with no problems.

The only issue you may encounter is with Office 2007 documents. There is a compatibility download from Microsoft for this - you can download it here, but you probably won't need it. Just thought I'd throw it in :whistling:
