Word 2010 File Block on saving older formats (Upgraded from Word 2000)
Posted on 2011-04-27
I have a client who recently purchased Office 2010 to finally get up to date after using Office 2000 for a very long time. Having just upgraded, their entire library of documents is in the older format. The issue is that they can open all their documents, but File Block settings are preventing them from saving. I've checked under the File Block settings and see that there is no check box under the Save column for older file types, such as Word 2000 Binary Documents. I've done some searching and found no answer on any way to get around this.
Is it possible to make changes so they can edit and save their documents that were saved in the older Word 2000 format? It seems that even Save As is not an option to convert them.
