RTF, better known as Rich Text Format is a file format standard where, by default is opened with Microsoft Word. If the person that received your RTF documents opens them, they will open in Microsoft Word. If the recipient edits and saves them, they will still be saved in RTF. When they send those documents back, you will open them....and back and forth.

    Also, just to clarify, if the receiver does not have Microsoft Word and tries to open the document, then the document will open using the default Notepad program. They will still be able to edit and send back.

Why are jpg attachments showing up as winmail.dat files on my iPhone?

I haven't seen much directly relating to jpg formats becoming winmail.dat files, but it seems with the new iphone ios7 operating system, many other types of RTF and PDF sorts are coming in as winmail.dat files and who's to blame at the moment might be unknown. Some blame Microsoft while others are isolating it down to the new ios7.

I'll keep looking but this is what i found so far...

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.

I cannot use my ms word.i forgot my product key.

Try doing this please reply if it was any help.

First, open the document and do a "Save As..." specifying Rich Text Format (RTF). It'll end up being called something.rtf

Now open the RTF file by double-clicking on it. It should look identical to the original Word file.

Final step: save the RTF file with a new name as a Microsoft Word format document.

If this does'nt work please try a software which can help crack your password.

How can I change work written in Microsoft Word Office and put on a CD so that it can be opened up on a MAC computer? I have written two books about my life. One is based on my life from 1929 to 1984 and...

The two of you may be running different versions of Microsoft Word,
with you having created some documents in a "newer" version than she is using.

The solution: open each document, and click "File" and then "Save As".
Under the "file name" input-area, there is a "save as type" pull-down.
Choose "rich text format". Save the file.

The "RTF" ("rich text format") was designed to be _highly_ portable,
without losing the text-formatting that you have done,
and she should have no problems with reading RTF files into Word.

How can i open a password protected word file

First, open the document and do a "Save As..." specifying Rich Text Format (RTF). It'll end up being called something.rtf.
Now open the RTF file by double-clicking on it. It should look identical to the original Word file.
Final step: save the RTF file with a new name as a Microsoft Word format document.
That's all there is to it. You've sidestepped the read-only lock on the file your boss sent you and are good to go.
In terms of actually breaking the password on a file that has it set as the "open file" password, that's beyond the scope of what I'll write about here. But I will say that there are some Google searches that can probably help you track down plenty of tips on doing just that.

Here is a link to some software that will do it

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Dreamweaver CS3

Import Microsoft Office documents (Windows only) You can insert the full contents of a Microsoft Word or Excel document in a new or existing web page. When you import a Word or Excel document, Dreamweaver receives the converted HTML and inserts it into your web page. The file’s size, after Dreamweaver receives the converted HTML, must be less than 300K.
Instead of importing the entire contents of a file, you can also paste portions of a Word document and preserve the formatting.
Note: If you use Microsoft Office 97, you cannot import the contents of a Word or Excel document; you must insert a link to the document.
  1. Open the web page into which you want to insert the Word or Excel document.
  2. In Design view, do one of the following to select the file:
    • Drag the file from its current location to the page where you want the content to appear.
    • Select File > Import > Word Document or File > Import > Excel Document.
  3. In the Insert Document dialog box, browse to the file you want to add, select any of the formatting options from the Formatting pop-up menu at the bottom of the dialog box, and then click Open. Text Only Inserts unformatted text. If the original text is formatted, all formatting will be removed.
    Text With Structure Inserts text that retains structure, but does not retain basic formatting. For example, you can paste text and retain the structure of paragraphs, lists, and tables, without retaining bold, italics, and other formatting.
    Text With Structure Plus Basic Formatting Inserts both structured and simple HTML-formatted text (e.g., paragraphs and tables, as well as text formatted with the b, i, u, strong, em, hr, abbr, or acronym tag).
    Text With Structure Plus Full Formatting Inserts text that retains all structure, HTML formatting, and CSS styles.
    Clean Up Word Paragraph Spacing Eliminates extra space between paragraphs when you paste your text if you selected Text With Structure or Basic Formatting. The contents of the Word or Excel document appear in your page.
