Word Processing Tips and Tricks

Working with Microsoft Office 2007

Unfortunately the files that Office 2007 creates are not easily opened and edited with previous versions of Office. It is recommended that if you are using Office 2007 that you save your files in a format that is backwards compatible with earlier versions of office.

If you are using an earlier version of Office or are using Open Office you can install Office 2007 converters which will allow you to open, edit and save Office 2007 files.

Mac users - try this free converter to allow you to open Office 2007 documents on the Mac.

Save Documents as Rich Text Format (RTF) Files

If you do not have Microsoft Word but instead have Microsoft Works or Word Perfect you will need to save your files as rich text format (.RTF) documents.

This is because that even though Microsoft Works, Microsoft Word and Word Perfect all create documents they have difficulty reading each other’s files. Saving your documents in RTF form will allow you (and your instructor) to easily access your work – regardless of what program it was created in!

Don't have Office?

If you don't have Microsoft Office here are a few options you can consider.
