As for error checking I wouldn't have a clue

But what I'm more than a bit confused about is what are you asking about .docx?

Are you asking what benefits it has over the older .doc format or is this something that you want to know about Error Checking?

Personally however I think this is what you are asking about and as M$ make this product I would expect their explanation to be the best.

Thanks very much for the info on the new Microsoft file types. I had thought that they were supposed to be less likely to become corrupt and I wondered if that meant they had better error checking methods.
I still would very much like to know (if anyone can tell me) what method Microsoft Word uses to check for errors (crc or what).
