At work I currently have a lot of old business requirement documents in doc format that I have to make changes to.
I was wondering, as I'm making changes to them is it a good idea to convert them to docx format?
From this question (Advantages of DOCX Format Over DOC) I know that docx is a more open format etc. but I'm just wondering from the user point of view, will saving my document in docx have any added benefit for me?
Will it cause any conversion problems in terms of stuffing up the formatting etc? Will I need to go through each document that I convert and make sure the formatting is all correct etc. or is it safe to assume that everything will be okay?
