    Office 2010 compatibility with Office 2003

    I'm finally sticking my hand in my pocket and buying my eldest's laptop and am looking at putting Office 2010 Professional Plus on it (c£39 from Software4Students and RM The Basement)

    Both her school and we are running Office 2003 with the the 2007 compatibility pack... I sense a potential problem. Will she need to save documents in the older format, or can Office 2k10 documents be opened in 2k3 with the 2k7 compatibility pack?
