Recently XP Pro was loaded on my office computer in place of Windows 2000.
All my old Word files do not open correctly. The fonts, indents, headings,
underline and other issues are wrong. I now operate Word 2003. I have a
read only cd and the new word doesn't open this correctly. help!! This is
also true with another office computer I tried to read the disk on.

For the Word experts, try posting at ...


Maybe the files are messed up.

Try saving the files to your hard disk first, then open them.

You can open documents created in previous versions of Microsoft Word
directly in Office Word 2003. All data and formatting created in these
versions of Word are fully supported in Office Word 2003.
