Download and install the Office Compatability pack for office 2007 system. This transforms DOCX and XLSX files to the old format when opening with office 2000 or office 2003. Works very good.

The easiest way would be to download the Office File Format converter from Microsoft.

hiroyuki718 I have users with Office 2000, and the file converter works fine for them with no issues. Have you actually downloaded and tried it yet? I would give that a shot and post back results.
