I have to upload a document on a site in word format,without any file extension, I have tried different ways but was not able to upload a file without having any extension?


I'm not sure why you'd have to upload a word document without the file extension, but you can do it by following these instructions:

Open Windows Explorer
Browse to the folder that has your document in it
Go to the Tools Menu (if there's none, press the ALT button)
Choose Folder Options
Select the 'View' tab
Make sure that the tickbox for 'Hide extensions for known file types' is NOT ticked
Click Ok until you are back to the folder with your document in it.

It should now have a name like Document.doc or Document.docx

Click on the file once, then once it is highlighted click again, and you can delete the .doc or .docx part.

Press enter when you are happy with the filename. Windows will give you a warning message saying it's not a good idea, but you can click ok past this.


If you are trying to upload a file WITH a file extension, follow the same instructions above, and instead of deleting the .doc or .docx, simply add it to the end of the filename.

How do I open a docx file without it corrupting.

Docx file is the default file format for MS word 2007 and 2010. If you have those application then you can open it easily. If you have the 2003 and below version, you will need to download the Office 2007 compatibility pack and install it to your PC then you can open the docx file

I am receiving word documents via email and when I open or save them they are saving as docx file types and opening with symbols instead of text. Im not sure what to do as this has never happened before,...

You need to open these files with a newer version of Word.

I use a program called OpenOffice

It's a free open-source version of Microsoft Office and can open docx files.

Good luck!

    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

    What is the meaning of X in the word DOCX?

    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.

    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.
