    Yes it is annoying incompatibility, and one that my users are hammering me daily about. I like Docs2go, but it isn't cheap. I want native support. Anyone know a timetable of when RIM will update this? It should be easier since Office 2007 formats are all XML based...

    Re: Office 2007 files and BES Attachments

    One thing that is extremely annoying is that when you change the default back to DOC and XLS on the workstation for compatibility reasons, after reboot the settings revert back to DOCX ans XLSX. Ughhhhh!

    I have tried to change the defaults because the BB's won't open the new format. Very troublesome.

    I don't have a solution for the BB, but for machines that still use Office 2003 and earlier, you can download this office compatibility pack for office 2007:

    The new BES SP should take care of this issue.

    Well I'll be d*****. I guess I hadn't checked it since I installed the latest SP. You are correct. I just tested it and the DOCX file opened up with no problem. Thanks audit for pointing that out.
