Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop Computer ?

Attachment - how to open?

\015 Hi, can someone give me some help please.\015\012\015\012I have an e-mail attachment ending by docx and I can't open it. What do I have to do to open it? Thanks.\015

Answers :

A "docx" document is a Microsoft Word 2007 version of the old Word 2003 "doc" document and not backward compatible. (Thanks MS!)

If you get these a lot and also have to edit them, the best way to do it is to install the Compability Pack from Microsoft on your computer (link).

If you do not use Microsoft Office (that includes Mac and Linux users), or you don't want to install any software, you can convert it online (link).
