I am not able to send a Microsoft Word document to my Windows XP system and open it. On my Mac I use Word 2001 and on the Windows computer I have Word 2003.
Any advice?
David

Any kind of error message when you attempt to open the document? How are you transferring it to the Windows machine?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Am I to assume you're sending it via email? And if so, are you using Mail.app to do so?

Mac OS X includes an email client called "Mail" (referred to as Mail.app, to avoid confusion). It has an icon that looks like a stamp. Is that what you're using to send the email?

When you attach the file via Mail, there should be a checkbox at the bottom of the window, like this:



Is the box checked?
