We are moving from Word 2003 to 2010. Users frequently use old docs to create new docs. I wrote a vba macro to convert an .DOC to a .DOCX file (using the .SaveAs2 wdFormatDocumentDefault parameter), attach to the new template, insert
new headers/footers, etc. However, after saving the document in the new format, the title bar still shows [Compatibility Mode]. Why? It opens okay as a DOCX file, but appears it may not really be a "true" DOCX file.
If I repeat the steps manually, I am prompted "You are about to save the file in a new format... Press OK to continue." Apparently it is this step that removes the [Compatibility Mode]. How can I perform that step programmatically?
