    I, unaware there was a problem with my word program saved my document as usual. When I tried to reopen it later, the document was no longer in text- just symbols. Instead of (.doc) it reads at the end of title  (.docx.) How can I return my document back into readable text?


    Thank-you,
    Katrina

Try this:
1. you may not have user permissions to make changes to the document:
check with the document creator or save the file with a different name so you become the new owner of the new document.
2. check if destination folder has enough room:
if not change the location of the file to be saved.
3. you may be using incorrect characters given the file name when saving the file:
don't use "/" when saving the file.

Can not save words document


I recommend looking at downloading either LibreOffice or OpenOffice: both are open-source office suites that are fully compatible with Microsoft Office, and that are free of charge.

Once you open the Word document in either LibreOffiec or OpenOffice, you will be able to edit/save your changes.

How to convert the microsoft 2007 to 2003?


Writing a document and saving - the document will be saved as .DOCX.
DOCX is the 2007 version.
Saving as 2003:
Use Save As - and here you can save as .DOC
Now the document is saved in a version which can be read by the 2003 version

In which we can open .docx files


You can open docx extension files only with MS Office 2007. If you wish to open it in earlier versions you have to save it again in compatible mode. Click on File (top left most corner with the logo), Save As, Word 97-2003 Document. Just using Save option will save your document as "docx" and not "doc" document.

My self rakesh,using 2007 microsoft word,how to convert the 2007 word format to 2003 format


Convert a document to Office Word 2007 The Word Convert command clears the compatibility options so that the document layout appears as it would if it had been created in Word 2007.
  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button default.aspx?assetid=za100771021033, and then click Convert.
  2. In the Microsoft Office Word dialog box, click OK.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To replace the original file with a file in the Office Word 2007 file format, click the Microsoft Office Buttondefault.aspx?assetid=za100771021033, and then click Save.
    • To save the original document in its original file format and create another document in the Office Word 2007 file format, click the Microsoft Office Button, click Save As, and then type a new name for the file.
    Note If the original .doc file is saved in a location other than your local drive, Word keeps the original .doc file and creates a new .docx file when you click Convert.
:)
