Answers :

.docx is the format for microsoft word 2007.

\015\012You will either need to buy a copy of office 2007, download the free viewer from www.microsoft.com then click downloads and type word viewer into the search bar, note, this only works to view or print not to edit.

\015\012Or you can download a copy of Open Office from www.openoffice.org it is free to download and use, but the company survives purely on donations so please donate whatever you can afford. That way they'll still be around in years to come.

\015\012If you already have Office 2003 you can also download from the microsoft site a free converter program that allows you to open and save back to the 2007 format, search for 2007 compatibility and you should find it top of the list of results.
