They already changed their existing systems, as Microsoft Word 200-whatever
that creates these docx files didn't exist until a few months ago.

Perhaps it would help if you pointed out to them that the Open Document Format
is an ISO standard for document storage and exchange, and suggest that they use
that instead.

I have never had that kind of a problem when people come to me for solutions:
"You want to do X, therefore you require Y.  Get Y."  They do so, and things
move along from there.
