Docx2RTF -- Convert Word 2007 files to RTF (Discovery)

Microsoft did it again with Word 2007. They changed the file format so that older versions and other Word Processors can't read it. If you get a Word 2007 .docx file from an associate or client, you no longer need to buy Office 2007 to read it. Docx2rtf is a freeware program that converts .docx files to the much more standard richtext (.rtf) format -- preserving as much of the original formating as the .rtf format allows. It will also convert the new "ODF" format used by the latest versions Openoffice, NeoOffice and similar program to standard richtext format. The latest versions of DocX2rtf will also convert to the PDF format and will convert PalmOS Database files (the format used in many Palm ebooks).

Docx2rtf conversion isn't perfect, but it will let you read and work with the data in a document stored in one of these newer formats without having to buy and/or install a new word processor program.
