Have you received at .docx file attachment in an email and wondered what the heck it was? Well those are okay to open, but you may not be able to read them in an older version of Microsoft Word. These are safe files and if you trust the sender you can open them just like any MS Word file.
About the .docx files:
My files are in the new 2007 Microsoft Word and those with tricky formatting may not be able to be read by someone with an old version of windows. So if I send them to you, well yes I figure that you might not be able to read them. I use the 2007 Microsoft Word Templates (they are in .doc’x), I do this because they have easy formatting for the table of contents which is hooked to the pages and changes the page numbers automatically and keeps the fonts.
It works good for making eBooks. Unfortunately, not everyone has the new 2007 Microsoft Word yet, so if you choose to use all the tricky features you cannot share the files. But you can convert to .pdf and everyone can read that. Once you get the new MS Word 2007 you will be amazed at all the new features it has and it will greatly increase your productivity.
Personally I very much recommend the new Microsoft 2007 Office Suite and would encourage you to upgrade. It has drastically helped me. And it does not cost that much either. Folks should respect their time and productivity and have the best business tools available. It is time to get with the program: Microsoft Word 2007.
