Hello

I have an issue for my office for mac 2008 word document. I created an document in office for mac 2008, and I tried to print this document while I am at work for using PC Microsoft office 2003. However, it is not readable with PC Microsoft office 2003! I used to create word document with office for mac 2004 and its all working fine. What happen is; when I opened this document in PC Office word 2003 is all in computer symbol, it has the same issue when I opened it in office for mac 2004. Is it some sort of setting I have to do in office for mac 2008 in order to make it readable with Microsoft word 2003 and office for mac 2004??

Many thanks for your advise and help

Kind regards,
Samuel

What format did you save it in? In office 2008 you have to save it as "Word 97-2004 (.doc)" instead of the default "Word Document (.docx)" in order for it to be compatible.

Or you can install the " Microsoft Office 2008 compatibility pack " on your machines that are running Office 2003

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

The patch, found here, is for Windows machines only. If you have a mixed environment, I suggest you just save your documents in the older format as a solution (and run the compatibility check first).
