My company has just decided to upgrade everyone to Office XP. I was worried about compatibility with old files, but they say that won’t be a problem. I was wondering what version of Office most people on this forum use. If you’ve upgraded, do you think it was worthwhile?

Microsoft usually does a good job of ensuring backwards compatibility. You will not have difficulties reading older files. You may have difficulties sharing Office XP files with non-Office XP users, however, if you save to newer XP formatted files.

Dear Kate,
You dont have any problem in this case. Windows Xp supported any old files.
