Convert Old Excel Files to 2007 Format

Microsoft has changed the format of its office programs for better developmental reasons from 2007 version. They use XML format that will help in changing the features or adding them to it. Since 2007 version the extension 'X' follows to usual .doc or .xls and so on for all its products. 

When you open a document from a previous version, you can see [Compatibility Mode] in the title bar.

To convert the document, click on the Microsoft Office button in the left hand corner, and then click on Convert

It will prompt to save the file with a name and we need to close the current file and reopen the new document with .xlsx extension that belongs to 2007 and 2010. It will show the following message when we open the new excel 2007 format file for the first time.
