18.5. Compatibility Checker

The Compatibility Checker checks to see if the document that you are emailing to your boss will actually open in his ancient copy of Word 97 (for example). The vagaries of document compatibility—even if they were all created in one version of Microsoft Office or another—can be incredibly complex. Sometimes a feature works fine, other times it doesn't. Sometimes a document just looks and works different for no apparent reason. The Compatibility Checker makes it simple to figure out what's going on—and even do something about it.


Note:

If you open a document that was created in another program or another version of Office, there probably are compatibility issues. The Toolbox icon on the Standard toolbar throbs when Office detects any incompatibility, even something so minor that you may not notice. Click the icon to open the Toolbox and find out what's going on.
