The Office Migration Planning Manager (OMPM) can help IT Pros who need to assess the compatibility of older Office documents (.doc, .xls, and so on) to the newer—better—OpenXML formats (.docx, .xlsx, etc.).

Office Code Compatibility Inspector

Designed with developers in mind, the Office Code Compatibility Inspector (OCCI) is nonetheless a handy assessment tool for your Office 2010 migration. OCCI is an add-in that helps developers troubleshoot and resolve potential issues with Microsoft Visual Basic for Application (VBA) Macros and add-ins. It scans code in a project for known compatibility issues, and then notifies you if it finds items in the code from the object model that have changed in some way or have been removed, automatically commenting code to clearly guide the developer to specific lines of code for remediation.

Whenever death may surprise us, let it be welcome if our battle cry has reached even one receptive ear and another hand reaches out to take up our arms.
I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man.
