MICROSOFT OFFICE 2007 CONVERSION PROGRAM:  Many people are now using Microsoft Office 2007.  When WORD 2007 creates a file, the extension is ".docx" and earlier versions of Microsoft Word (such as Office 2003) cannot open a ".docx" file.  For those with an earlier version of WORD or any other Microsoft Office program, the ".docx"  file will not open.  Microsoft has a conversion file available for those with Microsoft Word 2003 and earlier that will convert the ".docx"  file to a ".doc"  file so it can be opened and saved as such.  You can get the converter at no cost as a download from Microsoft, or you can download the same file from this website.  Just click on the menu item below for the conversion program and then select "save". Since many computer's security won't let the computer download a file ending with the extension ".exe", you may need to change your browser setting or approve the download of the file when prompted.  You will not need to install the program more than once as your computer will remember to convert any ".docx" to a ".doc" file. It will also convert any of the other Office 2007 files (such as Excel and PowerPoint) to the Office 2003 version.  The file is 28mb (large file) so it will take a while to download it from whatever source you use depending on the speed of your Internet Provider and your computer. ( If you are using Microsoft Office 2007 already, you do not need this file.)  Click on the link below this description to save the file to your computer.  If you prefer to download the same file directrly from Microsoft, click on the "Direct" link below.
