I have played with the Microsoft OMPM converter utility, but although this seems to convert doc's and xls's to docx's and xlsx's, it seems to put them into 2007 version. When you open them in 2010 it still says "Compatibility Mode" at the top. So this is not a good solution for me.
OriginalFileName = ActiveDocument.Name Path = ActiveDocument.Path NewFileName = OriginalFileName & "x" ChangeFileOpenDirectory Path ActiveDocument.SaveAs2 FileName:=NewFileName, FileFormat:= _ wdFormatXMLDocument, LockComments:=False, Password:="", AddToRecentFiles _ :=True, WritePassword:="", ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, EmbedTrueTypeFonts _ :=False, SaveNativePictureFormat:=False, SaveFormsData:=False, _ SaveAsAOCELetter:=False, CompatibilityMode:=14 ActiveDocument.Close WholePath = Path & "\" & OriginalFileName Kill WholePath
