I'm assuming you're talking about the new office 2007? meaning word 2007?

If that is the case, then yes it does run older versions of word. In the sense that if you have a word document that was made and saved in Word 2003 it would work in 2007.

Just like when you make something in word 2007 you are able to save it as a Word 03-07 document so it works on both versions of Microsoft Word.

Hi Learner87,

You might want to look at the information provided in the two links in the Bleeping Computer post below. The first link there describes how to save files in Word 2007 using the "old" format. The second link there describes how you can update older versions of Office programs (e.g., Word 2003) to process (i.e., read and write) files recorded/saved in the new Office 2007 format:
