No. M$ are losers like that, and they did it on purpose.

I second the use of OO.org.

You should have the option to save files in "'97-03 compatible mode" in M$ Office'07, which would put your files in .doc format instead of .docx

But I use OpenOffice.

OpenOffice ftw!

I never use M$ Office anymore, OpenOffice does all the same stuff just as good, if not better. And its free.

masked_marsoe is right you should have the ability to select to save in an '03 compatible format.

You can also download an update for Office 2003 from the link at the bottom of the post that will allow you to use the new 2007 format in Office 2003.

Download details: Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats

But the likely hood of her being able to install that on the college computers is very small. Therefore, just save the file in the .doc format. To do that, hit the button in the upper left hand corner, hit save as, and at the scroll down list near the bottom of the window that pops up, select Word 97-03 or something like that to save it in the old .doc format.

How about using good old RTF format ? (Unless your doc has pictures, then better is to use word 97 compatible format.)

Considering the 'F' in RTF already stands for format, your subsequent use of the word format is an unnecessary repetition. I know that is otherwise irrelevant to this thread, so I will now quit talking talking.
