Visio 2007 - vsdx file

Just wondering if anyone knows if Visio 2007 can open a vsdx file.  I am planning to buy it but not sure if it can open a vsdx file.

Nope, you need Visio 2010 or later to open the vsdx files.

A slight correction to arober11's response above: it is true that you can open vsdx files with Visio 2010, but you need the Visio Compatibility Pack to do so. This is from the description: "The Microsoft Visio Compatibility Pack opens drawings in the newer file format when used together with the Microsoft Visio 2010 SP2 update."

There isn't a corresponding option for Visio 2007 as far as I know.

BTW, if you don't have Visio yet and are buying a copy, I would strongly recommend Visio 2010 over Visio 2007. The feature set is a huge step forward -- the biggest set of improvement and new features in at least 10 years -- and it's much easier to use.
