Office 2010 & Office 2013 Compatibility

The quick answer is YES, however you will need to download an OOXML strict converter from Microsoft to open Office 2013 documents in Office 2010.

You can find the converter here:


The above support article also addresses conversions from Office 2013 to Office 2007 and Office 2003.
