This method is used in a Word 2007 project.

When you open a document in Word 2013 or Word 2010 that was created in a previous version of Word, Compatibility Mode is turned on. Compatibility Mode ensures that no new or enhanced features in Word 2013 and Word 2010 are available while working with a document, so that people who edit the document using previous versions of Word will have full editing capabilities.
