The X stands for XML (Extensible Markup Language), which is the programming language behind the scenes in Office 2007 programs.
Previous versions of Word were based on binary data. Binary data is, by nature, prone to corruption, and "bloated."
By changing the background code, Microsoft was able to create new tools and features in Word 2007 that would not have been possible otherwise.
After typing the document, save it as a word document NOT as a text document. If you save it as a text document Microsoft Word will not open it automatically. Hope this will work for you. If you find this solution helpful, please give a rating luciana44
