Microsoft Office File Converter Pack
As I'm sure you know, Microsoft and other software vendors update their products with new features which tend to make the old versions kind of obsolete. Many times when you have a file created with an older version of an Office program you can have trouble opening it with the latest and greatest version. This is where converters come into play.
The Microsoft Office File Converter Pack provides file converters and image filters for Microsoft Office programs for Office 97, 2000, XP and 2003 running on Windows 98, 2000, XP and 2003.
The Converter Pack can be useful to organizations that use Microsoft Office 2003 in a mixed environment with earlier versions of Office and other applications. While these converters and filters have been available previously, they are combined together in one download for convenient deployment.
Not all converters available with Office 2003 are installed by default. You may need to run the setup utility from Add/Remove Programs to install the optional converters.
