Suspected Compatibility Issue between Word 2007 & 2010

I have Office 2007 on my work pc (running XP), and Office 2010 on my home pc (running Windows 7). I took one of my Word docs (saved in 2007), and opened it on the home pc in Word 2010.
I did my changes, and then clicked save. I could see that the document was saved in Compatibility Mode - as the name on the top tool bar was "Doc Name" (Compatibility Mode).
Document saved all ok - no problems. File size was reduced from 1500 KB to 500 KB at the point of saving the file, though.
I then tried to open the file on my work pc in Word 2007. Nothing happens. Word opens, but the actual document does not. I only have the option for "New" and "Open", and everything else is greyed out.
Anyone have any idea what this issue is? I have the compatibility pack for 2007 installed on my pc.
