I have created my resume using Word 2013, and now when I try to open it in Word 2003 to modify it, it doesn't open properly. It gives me a bunch of unrecognizable characters. What do I need to install so I can view my resume in Word 2003 and hopefully be able to edit it. Thanks.

I presume you are using the Microsoft Office XP; hence, I also presume that you have updated your Microsoft Office
on or before April 8, 2014, the last day to update. This is necessary before doing the download of the compatibility pack.
Assuming that you have made the update, download the Compatibility Pack here
and save it to your hard disk the file named "FileFormatConverters.exe". Once it is saved, open this file to start the setup program. Do the step by step guide shown on the screen to finish the installation. This will enable you to work on your documents in Word 2003 that were initially started with the Word 2013.
If you have not updated, then it will by luck that the rest of the step will work out in your favor.
