Opening Excel 2013 Files in Excel 2002 or 2003
File, Save As to save the file with a new name. This prevents the original
document from losing the incompatible features.
Excel 2003 does its best to deal with the incompatible features. Figure 7.9
shows the file opened in Excel 2003. The WordArt changes to boring text. The

are lost.
