Overcoming Compatibility Issues
Are you using MS Office 2007, and getting complaints that people can’t open the documents you send them? You can set the default "file save as" to the Word 97-2003 file format, which is compatible with earlier versions of MS Office.
- Click the Office Button
- Click Word Options
- Click Save
- In the "Save Files in This Format" field, click the pull down arrow and select the Word 97-2003 format.
- Click the OK button.
Many of the custom choices you used to make under the Tools menu are available from the office button. Some of them will affect all of your installed MS Office Applications.
