Message displayed when closing and saving a word file

I get a Microsoft Office Word message box  as follows:  "Some of the features in this document aren't supported by Microsft Word 97." "Summary  Nested table cells will be lost.  Cell contents wil be seperated by tabs or Pictures and objects with text wrapping will move above the table they are in"  Message changes depending on file opened.

This message opens when I try and save a word document. It first occured today when I opened up a fax template that I had used many times in the past.   I do not use word 97 but rather Word 2003.  I tried several different documents and get the same message and the summary is different depending on which document I opened.  It seems to have something to do with tables inside a word document.  When you close the message box you have option to continue or cancel. If you continue it messess up the tables inside the document.  If you cancel you can't close the document.   A word document without tables is unaffected. I have searched thru the options and can't seem to make this go away.  My computer is up to date with the windows and office upates.  I have run the detect and repair as well and nothing has worked.    
Thanks in advance for anyone that can resolve this issue.

I am away from my Word 2003 at the moment to check the details (using 2000), but try Tools/Options, Compatability tab.

There is a drop-down to select a particular version of Word. It might be set to Word 97. If is not, and unless you have a good reason not to, select your current version.

This will set the appropriate Option checkboxes in the list below. You can go to this list and change them individually if necessary. There are about three that refer to Word 97 tables.

The one you forgot was Tools > Save.  There's an option there to "disable features introduced after".  Make sure that is unchecked also.

Two possible solutions were given, but an update from the asker to see if any additional help is required would be nice.
