Making Your Word Documents Compatible with Earlier Versions of Word

Word 2003 saves files in the same format as Word 2000, Word 2002 (XP), and Word 97, so someone who is using these older versions of Word can open your Word 2003 documents without converting them. You can also open older Word documents in Word 2003 without a conversion process. However, Word 2003 does have some features that are not supported by earlier versions of Word. If you want to create documents specifically for use in Word 97 or Word 6.0/95—perhaps most of the people in your office are still using Word 97 or Word 6.0 (95)—you can tell Word 2003 to disable all the features that Word 97 or Word 6.0/95 does not support. Follow these steps:

1.
Choose Tools, Options.

2.
Click the Save tab (see Figure 18.18).

Figure 18.18. Use the Save tab to disable features not supported by Word 97.


3.
Mark the Disable Features Introduced After check box, and choose Word 97 or Word 6.0/95 in the drop-down list.

4.
Click OK.
