Mass conversion of word 97 docs to word 2007

Hi
I need to convert a few docs to docx as some of our old 97 type docs seem to be crashing work 2007. This happens once in a while and is very annoying because a system reboot needs to be performed before the document can be opened. We have just moved from XP / Office 2003 to Win 7 / Office 2007 and never had these issues before. All systems were formatted not upgraded. Help appreciated.
Please note I wish from 97 to docx not docx to 97.

Slouzer, so am I to assume that since you said (Is there a down-loadable solution) that your answer to my first questions is "Mass Conversion"?? I say this because you pointed out that you could not upload some of the files, which is why I suggested that if there were only a few then convert them from within Word 07.


Here is a down-loadable solution that should do .docx to .doc and .doc to .docx. It does have a 7 day trial. Hope this helps.

Hello Slouzer, could you please clarify something for me. You said in your title (Mass conversion...), but in your opening statement you said (convert a few docs...) Which one is it?? Here is why I ask. There are a couple of ways that you can do this. The easiest one is if there are only a handful of documents then you can just open them in word and then re-save them as a .docx file. If it is crashing word like you said above you may want to have a look at the link below.
