MS Word 2007 Tips – Automatically saving files as an older version

by Chris Leong

I don’t know about you guys. But sometimes i find it very troublesome when i need to send files to someone with an older version of office. I need to frequently remind myself to save it in an older version.

But recently i found 2 ways to overcome this.

Tip #1

  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button , and then click Word Options.
  2. Click Save.
  3. Under Save documents, next to Save files in this format, select Word 2003-97 Document (*.doc).

Tip #2

Ask your friend to install Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack. Then Office 2003 version will be compatible with Office 2007 files.

Hope this helps. Cheers
