Converting a Prior Version File
to Office 2010
Click OK and another conversion message
appears. Click Yes and Excel saves the file in
the new format. Excel replaces the older
version of the workbook, using the same
name you used for the older version of the
document. If the older version was an Excel
97-2003 or earlier document, Excel 2010
changes the extension to .xlsx.
If you originally created a file in a prior than 2007
version of Microsoft Office, you may find you want
to convert it to an Office 2010 file so you can take
advantage of the great new features provided by
Office 2010. The steps are similar but not quite
exactly the same in all Office programs. Begin by
opening a file created in the earlier Office version.
The application title bar indicates the document is
in Compatibility Mode.

(See Figure 1-15.) Word displays a message

same name you used for the older version
of the document. If the older version was a
Word 97-2003 or earlier document, Word
2010 changes the extension to .docx.
