Word 97 Document Compatibility

Word 97, the word processing program which comes with Windows 95, produces documents which can't be opened in earlier versions of Word. This can be a problem when communicating with people who haven't been upgraded to Win95 yet. To avoid this, save your documents so: select FILE, then select SAVE AS. In the drop down box next to SAVE AS TYPE, select Rich Text Format (*.RTF). Name your file, then select the SAVE button in the upper right corner.
