Microsoft Office 2007: A Worthy Upgrade
This redesigned productivity suite is powerful and full featured,
once you get used to the changes.

Handling Open XML Documents
If you receive an Open XML document and don't have the appropriate 2007 Office application, one of several things will happen. Assuming that you are a diligent Office 2003 or Office XP user and have kept your suite current--through Microsoft Update, for example--you will have received code (which Microsoft has been quietly shipping through software updates) that makes these versions of the suite Office 2007-aware. This is the best-case scenario, needless to say.

When such users try to open an Open XML document from within the updated Word, Excel, or PowerPoint 2003 or XP program, they'll get a pop-up window informing them that they need to obtain the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats--a free, 27MB download from Microsoft's Web site. After installing the Compatibility Pack, you'll be able to open, edit, and save Office 2007 XML files in Office 2003 or XP.,12791 ... ticle.html

The above "download" link is this:
