Reading Office 2007 files with Older Versions of Office

File conversion dialogLately I've begun receiving MS Word and Excel files in the new Office 2007 XML format. My (legal) copy of MS Office 2000, which otherwise serves me perfectly well, can not read these files. Enter the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats. It converts the new file format into the older format so the document is readable by older versions of Office.

It was a pleasant surprise when I hit Google and found a solution from Microsoft that didn't require an upgrade!
