pre-Word 97 Format Support


We are using aspose.words for loading a word document and converting it to pdf. While trying to convert a word document, we got an error stating that "This document is in the pre-Word97 format and it is not currently supported".

Any fix came for this issue? Else how do we process it?

Hi Parthiban,

Thanks for your inquiry.

Unfortunately, Aspose.Words does not support pre-Word97 format. We will consider supporting this format in future. Your request has been linked to the appropriate issue (WORDSNET-3881) in our issue tracking system and you will be notified as soon as this old format is supported.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best regards,

Hi. One of our customers needs to open documents in a pre-Word 97 format too. Is there an ETA for this feature?


Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, at the moment we cannot provide you any reliable estimate. This issue is not likely to be fixed in the near future as the implementation of this issue has been postponed till a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Best regards,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-3881) have been fixed in this .NET update and this Java update.
