How open .docx attachment?

by larryac / June 23, 2010 12:39 AM PDT

I can't open a .docx attachment(which I undertand is created by Word 2008). I use Word 2004 on an iBook, 2005.
Does anyone have a way to open this?

OpenOffice will open docx

The latest OpenOffice for Mac will open most of docx files just fine, There is really need to upgrade for most people. Google documents will also be of help.

I have used OpenOffice to view .DOCXs and to save them as .DOCs. Beware, as cool as it is, it doesn't work 100%. Documents with anything other than the simplest of formatting don't render well.
