Would it be possible that any documents posted to the forum not be done ni the DOCX format.  This format is not supported by older versions of MS Office other than through a compatibility pack.  Even when using the compatibility pack though there is a potential for lost information or format that could be important to the documents intent.

The easiest fix for this is to upgrade Office. I know a lot of people are hesitant about changing because Microsoft has made some drastic changes to look and feel of Office. But Office 2010 is huge improvement of 2003 and 2007.
