How to save your Open/Libre Office documents by default in Microsoft Office...


There are many people out there who are looking for great open source software, and some of you have stumbled upon Open Office or Libre Office. This is a great alternative to Microsoft Office but with one small problem. It is always trying to get you to save in the Open Document format instead of a Microsoft Office format that your friends and coworkers can open and use. Well I am going to show you a solution to this problem!

Open up any of the programs in the Open/Libre Office suite. Once it is open go into the Tools menu and select "options". From there, expand the Load/Save option and then select "general"

Near the bottom you will see a heading for "Document Type". Select the dropdown box under that and select "Text Document" and then select the dropdown box under "Always Save as" and then select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP". After that go back to the "Document Type" and select "Spreadsheet" and set always save to "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP". Lastly Choose "Presentation" and always save as "Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP". Once you do this hit "OK" and your changes will be saved. From now on everytime you save a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet or a PowerPoint presentation it will by default save as a Microsoft Office format!

How to save a word 2007 document to be compatible with Word 97-2003


If you want to save a document to be compatible to open in word 97-2003 you cannot simply automatically save the document because it will save as a .docx. Therefore you cannot click on the disk icon at the top to save your document.

1: Go to the at the top left corner
2: Choose Save As. Another menu will appear
3: Choose Word 97-2003 Document from the list
4: Choose where to save your file.
5: After the file has been saved as a .doc you can now just press save instead of save as. You can also press on the save symbol (a floppy disk) to automatically save the file now.
Yes you can but you must download a compatibility pack from Microsoft. This will enable you to open Word 2007, PowerPoint 2007, and more in your Office 2003 program. You can also download the free Open office program. It will open .docx files already. Go to the Microsoft website to download Word viewer
And you will also need Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats.

How to know if a document is in word 97 format? I have microsoft word 2002 in my pc. is it in word 97 format too?


MS Word files have .doc extension (Word 97-2003 Format). With Word 2002, you can open and edit Word 97 files as well. Since launch of MS Office 2007, the files have the extension .docx. These files can be opened with earlier versions of MS Word (97, 2002, 2003 etc) by installing the compatibility pack, which is available at Microsoft Official Site.

Hope this answers your question. Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

I have a 2007 student office program on my computer and my instructor is using the 97-2003 version of word processor and i can not open it to read what can i do?


The problem is with the format in which office 2007 saves its documents for eg in 2003 it saves as .doc extension and in 2007 it saves as docx extension. Any document typed on 2007 and saved as compatible mode for earlier version i.e. 2003 will be opened in 2003 but the same cannot be opened in 2007 if typed on 2003. Your solution is that either you will have to install office 97-2003 on your pc (it accepts both the packages) or your instructor will have to install 2007 on his pc.

Document received but unable to be opened / read


If you have MS Word 2007, by default, the file extension is .docx and it can't be open by previous versions of MS Word unless conversion packs are installed. To make your scanned documents accessible to others, save it using .doc extension. You can do so by following these steps:
  1. Click on file (round button) then Save As
  2. Save your document with compatibility with Microsoft Office '97 to 2003.
  3. The file extension will be .doc and you should be good to go.

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.
