Odds and Ends: Office 2007 for Windows uses new file format, compatibility package for Mac versions of Office coming

Office 2007 for Windows uses new file format, compatibility package for Mac versions of Office coming Microsoft Office 2007 for Windows uses a slew of new file formats that are natively incompatible with previous editions of Office for both Mac OS X and Windows.

For previous Windows versions of Office, a compatibility pack has been released that allows opening and limited editing of the new document format. For previous Mac OS X versions of Office, a similar compatibility pack is on the way.

We're seeking an interim solution for users who need to access these new file formats on Macs today. If you have any information, please let us know.
