How do I open a Wordpad .docx document with Word 2002?

Received a .docx attachment on an email.  It indicates it is in Wordpad format with a .docx suffix.  When using Word 2002 to open it I get nothing but garbage.  Same when I convert it to .pdf.  How do I get this document to open in MS Word?

Hello smfabharvey,

docx is the new Word 2007 file format.  You can go to the Microsoft web site to download a compatibility
pack that will let you open it in earlier versions.

Regards,

Patrick
