Chapter 3. Creating and Saving Documents > Opening an Existing Document

Opening an Existing Document

The great advantage to word processors is that you can use the same files repeatedly to create similar documents. You can return to the same document as many times as you want to print it, edit it, or add new material to it. Or you can open an existing document and use parts of it in a new document.

You are not restricted to opening files created by Word. When you install Word, you are given the option of installing one or more conversion files that enable you to open files created by other programs, for example, WordPerfect. Word's conversion capability enables you to view and edit a document created by another user using a different program or to convert documents you created on another word processor as you make the transition to Word.
