You're posting in the Win98 forum yet you list your OS as Windows 7 & your question is about Office Software.

Try installing OpenOffice: http://www.openoffice.org/

"i work with microsoft 98"

Assuming you are running Windows 98 with Word 98, Office 3.0 provides support for .docx, .pptx, and .xlsx.

In oder to install OO3 on Windows 98, you need to install Kernel Ex, reboot, and install OO3 with XP compatibility mode.



If you aren't running Windows 98, then follow mickliq in response number two.

Ask the senders to save their files in the older formats. The patches that may be available do not work 100%. You might consider upgrading to something newer than Office 98, if that is what you are using. Open office would probably work better for your. It is open source and free.
