PECIFYING FILE COMPATIBILITY
As different versions of Word have been released over the years, there
are noticeable differences in the way text layout and formatting
appear. Sometimes it’s necessary to make changes to an existing
document so that it emulates the formatting of a previous version of
Word. Having this ability makes viewing these types of documents
easier. The changes you make aren’t permanent, so you can change things
back to the old display if you need to.
1. Open the document.
2. Go to Tools | Options | Compatibility.
3. Click on the Font Substitution button to substitute non-supported
fonts with supported ones, and click OK.
4. Choose the version of Word you want to emulate from the Recommended
Options For drop-down list.
5. Enable the appropriate check boxes in the Options list to select any
additional desired display aspects.
6. Click OK.

Today we get to deal with compatibility problems between Office 2007and previous versions. Office 2007 is supposed to be able to openstandard 2003 and previous files, but you still have font problemsoccasionally. If you’re using an older version of Office, you candownload the Compatibility Pack which is supposed to make OpenXML documents work in Office 2003, but it’s kind of a hit and miss affair.

Why do my photos and documents open in notepad


Notepad is a generic text editor included with Microsoft Windows that enables someone to open and read plaintext files. If the file contains special formatting or is not a plaintext file, it will not be able to be read in Microsoft Notepad.

Can't save world document in 2010 office


Losing work is great for terrible moods.

There is nothing like spending an hour hammering away at your keyboard making edits to an important document, only to find that you're unable to save it when you're done.


If you're experiencing this issue and Microsoft Word is throwing errors instead of saving your hard work, there is still hope for you.

There's a good chance the file you're working on is read-only.


Saving a new copy will often fix this issue.

If you can't do that, copying the body of a document to another application should do the trick.


Select the "File" tab on the Microsoft Word toolbar. Click "Save As."


Browse to the location you wish to store the file in. Select a format from the "Save as type" drop-down list.


Microsoft Word 2010 will default to the .docx format.


Use "Word 97-2003 Document" to save the file as a .doc file.


Type a name for the file and click "Save."

A new copy of the document will be saved to the location you specified.


Your edits will be included in this new document.

This procedure will get you around read-only permissions.


Use Another Program


Select your Microsoft Work window and press "Ctrl" and "A" simultaneously.

This will highlight the entire document.


Press "Ctrl" and "C" simultaneously to copy the whole document to the Windows clipboard.


Launch an alternate text-editing application.

WordPad and Notepad are included with Windows so they make a logical choice.


Applications like Microsoft Works Word Processor or AbiWord should work as well.

Press "Ctrl and "V" simultaneously to paste your document into the second application.


Click "File" and select "Save As." Select a location, a format and a name for the file and click "Save."


Hope this helps

Free microsoft word download


For a free trial version you can try the link below:
http://microsoft-office-2007.en.softonic.com
However, if you are looking for free office productivity suite, open office would be the easier option, as it is totally free and works as good as or even better than MS office. Try the link below for the same.
http://www.openoffice.org
Open office does way better than the Home and student MS office version do. Though open office saves in .odt format instead of the .doc format, you can save in .doc format also. If you want to send a document in .doc format to someone who can read only .doc format, this helps. Like wise, you can save in MS office formats for spread sheet or presentations. Open office also give you the option of saving in PDF format, if you want to send a document which is not editable by the recipient. One also will get a great selection of fonts and clip art galleries.

Can ms works 6 files be opened with open office .org


Hi

Openoffice can read anything that MS office can make. Openoffice can also save files in MS office's .doc format. So, if you are sending documents to people that don't have Openofice, and that need to edit the documents you should send them in .doc/.xls/etcetera. If they don't need to edit the document it's best to use .pdf since that guarantees that they will see the document as you intended.


Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful

I am tryng to edit a microsoft word document but it says its locked and i never locked it how do i unlock it??


Check and see if you have a subdocument in this document. If so Microsoft Word locks subdocuments when any of the following cases is true:

  • The subdocuments are collapsed
  • The master document is shared by a workgroup, and someone else is currently working on the subdocument
  • Someone who previously worked on the subdocument set file sharing tot he read-only option.
  • The subdocument is stored on a read-only file share.
A subdocument in a master document (master document: A "container" for a set of separate files (or subdocuments). You can use a master document to set up and manage a multipart document, such as a book with several chapters.) may be locked when somone else is working on it, or it may be set to open as read-only.
  1. On the View menu, click Outline.
  2. If the subdocuments are collapsed, on the Outlining toolbar click Expand Subdocuments default.aspx?assetid=za060454991033.
  3. Click anywhere in the subdocument that you want to lock or unlock.
  4. On the Outlining toolbar, click Lock Document default.aspx?assetid=za060448491033.

I cannot open attachments and any attachments I send cannot be opened. I am using Yahoo mail and microsoft works word processor. I have sent word files as well as photoes seperatley.


I would recommend to stop using Microsoft Works, as not everyone has it. Microsoft Word will let you open all Word attachments. Word documents are NOT compatible with Works. If you have a copy of Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007 available, you should install it, otherwise, I would recommend that you buy Microsoft Office 2007.

There a document in an e-mail and I want to read it. What can I do?


Although you may not have given enough information*, try this:

1. Click or double-click on the document icon in the email message. It will open or you may have to "save" it to your computer, such as the "desktop". Then you can open it from there by double-clicking on the saved document.

2. The computer you are using may not have the proper program to read the document. If you have Microsoft Word 2003 or 2000, then the document may be Microsoft Word 2007. The sender has to send it in Word 2003 or 2000 format.

I hope this helps, if it's not enough info for you, please post a comment and I or someone else will respond quickly.

* Information that would help:
1. What email program/service are you using? Outlook? Hotmail? Yahoo?
2. What is the name of the document? Is it a "TXT" or "DOC" or "DOCM" document?
3. Could you read it on a different computer?
4. Do you get an error message? What is the message?
