Can I save in the older .doc format?

 

 

I need to share by document with people who have an older version of Word. Can I save as a .doc instead of .docx?

Yes, once the document is started you can save it in any format that Word supports.

 

Did you know.....

Word 2003 users can open the newer format files if they install the Office compatibility pack.
