Office 2007 vs 2010

  Date: Nov 01    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 1391

I have a client that will soon migrate to SP2010, but they will not be moving to
Office 2010. I know that Office 2010 will provide better integration and easier
development. Can I develop with Office 2010 products and save docs and templates
in a format that is readable by Office 2007?

The file formats did not change in most cases between Office 2007 &
2010. For those few applications where they did (like Project), you can
do a "Save As" to use the older format.

Project is not used. Did Infopath stuff change?

Answer #3    Answered On: Nov 01    

Yes it did. For InfoPath there are actually compatibility options within the
application itself which will allow you to set what your target client (or
server) should be.

Office 2007 files and Office 2010 files format are same.

Answer #5    Answered On: Nov 01    

Not in all cases - InfoPath and Project for sure have differences, there
may be others I haven't noticed yet.

Technet has an article that may answer your questions:

For example OneNote 2010:
File format

The OneNote 2010 file format enables new features, such as sharing on the Web,
linked note-taking, mathematical equations, and versioning.

OneNote 2010 will continue to work on Office OneNote 2007 notebooks without
changing to the new file format. By default, notebooks are not upgraded. Do not
upgrade notebooks if you plan to share them with Office OneNote 2007 users. To
change an existing notebook to the OneNote 2010 notebook format, use the
Notebook Properties dialog box: Click the File tab, click the Settings drop-down
menu, and then click Properties, or right-click the Notebook and click
