    The answer seems to be YES. You can see a list of supported file formats by searching for "office 2019 supported file formats" and clicking the link titled "File format reference for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint".

  • Microsoft has always maintained backwards compatibility with older versions. I imagine this would be the same. I can’t imagine that the 2019 version of Word for example wouldn’t be able to open and edit a 2008 file.
