I mean, does it make any difference whether the file was created in Office 2007, 2010 or 2013?

Thank you.

The DOCX filter is for all three versions (at least in my memoQ 2014).

the particular version of MS Word makes difference. Micro$oft keeps on quietly changing file format specs in order to compromise compatibility (their usual policy). I’ve seen reports about third-party apps unable to properly handle Word 2013 files while Word 2007 was OK. Thus, unless Kilgray has upgraded their file filter, problems are possible (however, everything may be fine, it depends on the particular file).
