Office 97-2003 exports no longer available in Google Drive
In October 2012 Google announced that support for exporting from Google Drive and Google Docs to older Microsoft Office formats (97-2003) will end on 31 January. Google said: 
“To continue adding new features and innovations to Google Drive and Docs, we’ll be focusing our resources on exporting to these newer open formats rather than the older, proprietary Office formats...that were used in Office 97-2003.”
