New Office 2K3 SP3 breaks old file compatibility

Monday, January 7th, 2008

I just read on ComputerWorld that the new Office SP3 patch will break compatibility with old Office formats. The move was made to avoid security risks that the old formats had. Among the old formats are powerpoint documents and word documents created with Microsoft Office for Mac. This means that as of now, if you use the only Microsoft product on the Mac for creating word and powerpoint files, there might be a chance that your document will be unreadable by someone who is using Office 2K3 SP3.

Fortunately, there is a way of enabling all the “insecure” file formats back; but this requires some registry hacking. While I have not read any of the fixes or new features included in SP3, the sole fact that it renders Microsoft old file formats incompatible is the only reason I need not to upgrade.
