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.

A document I am working on somehow got changed to rich text format, I don't know how this happened or how to change it back.


If you have Microsoft word on you computer, you may do any one of these steps that you are most comfortable with. First, you may click the document twice to rename it eg "name.doc" insure that you put .doc at the end or you may right click the file and choose open with and select Microsoft word and then go to save as and save it as a word document. Or you can open the file in word-pad and copy the text and paste it in a word document and save it. Rich text format is a Microsoft word-pad document while .doc is a MS word document or now they have .docx.

hope this help you have a great day!

I have sent a word document created in vista, and have sent it to an XP user. They cannot open or view the document. How do I change the settings in Vista to resend the document?


You need to make sure that the file extension is correct, for example .doc because there are others that a .docx extension as well. One thing is that make sure whenever you are saving a word document try to save it as Word 97-2003 document, in that way it can open to any other Microsoft Word application without thinking what kind of operating system does the computer have.
