    Not that I know of, but I haven't searched for an add-on. Here's what I did find:

    MacNN
    Apple has acknowledged file compatibility issues with the new iWork '09 software suite that was debuted at the Macworld Expo early in January. Users running iWork '08 will not be able to open files saved in the iWork '09 formats. The issue also applies to Numbers '08, Keynote '08 and Pages '08 documents that are opened and saved using iWork '09.
    The company suggests that users save files as iWork '08 documents from within iWork '09. The software will provide a prompt if the file was made with an earlier version. A copy of the file can then be saved as an iWork '08 or Microsoft Office document.

    Apple has not yet announced additional details, including the possibility that future software updates will alleviate the problem.

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    This incompatability is one reason Office 2008 is the pick of the office suites.

    I'll second that harry. Folks like to bad-mouth anything Microsoft, but MS Office suites are still the standard for business and education.

    Regards.

    If u are on iWork 09 then all the 08 files will open in 09 - if u have to send files to bods still on 08 then use Save As;

    ....and good luck getting others to do the above, if that's what you require.
