    1. Do you mean that you save xml content with .docx extension?
    2. What happens if you open your file in Word 2010, save as a new .docx document, will it be opened in Word 2003?

    I think that the problem here is that you send an xml content and tell that it's a file with .docx extension. In fact, docx is more than just xml and that's the reason why you get xml structure instead of document. 

    You can try to play with MIME type and set instead of application/msword one of the following values




    In case of Response.ContentType="text/xml" you might tell that extension is ".xml" and not ".docx"

    Additionally, check an article here at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc164064.aspx regarding xml docs.

    Let me know if it helps.

    In general, OpenXML can create real docx using WordprocessingDocument.Create(), so if you will not find any solution with xml, try to change the way you create documents.

    When i tried to generate .docx, I used the below MIME type


    even then i get unwanted tags when opened in 2003 and unable to open in 2010 it throws error

    i have XML file in flat opc format.. i want to convert it into .docx format.

    Use WordprocessingDocument.Create() and similar methods.
