I can. I've used it a number of times and never had a problem.

Note that Word 2003 catches subtle corruptions that are tolerated (i.e.
unnoticed) by Word 2000. I've used Open and Repair on documents that
Word 2000 recognized as corrupt, as well as on documents that Word 2000
tolerated and only Word 2003 recognized as corrupt. In both cases, Open
and Repair restored the documents without any problem. YMMV
