office webparts with office 2010 in moss 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using office 2003 with moss 2007. We are planning to upgrade from office 2003 to office 2010 and I notice that office 2003 webparts are not working in office 2010. For a woraround I installed office 2003 web components with office 2010 and now office 2003 web parts are working with office 2010 in moss 2007.

    Is there any other workaround for office 2003 web parts to work with office 2010? 

    any help appreciated.

  • Hi SPtrick,

    In this situation, you need to install the correct version of web components if you need the web parts to work.

    If you have documents or solutions that depend on the previous components, these solutions do not function properly if the correct version of components are not installed on the client machine.
