Chapter 12. Using Data from Other Sources > Working with Files in Other Formats

Working with Files in Other Formats

With the increased popularity of sharing documents through email attachments, you never know what you’re going to get in your Inbox. You might be lucky enough to get a Word file, but is it in a format that is compatible with Word 2003? What about WordPerfect documents? And Web pages?

Word uses file converters to convert files into a form that can be read in Word. The most commonly used converters are installed by default, and more can be installed if necessary. Word can open and save files in many formats, in addition to the default .doc format, without the use of a converter. Documents that were created in earlier versions of Word can be opened directly in Word 2003; all data and formatting are preserved.
