    I'Work 05 Word Document Creation/Compatibility?
    Hi all, I apologize for asking this question if the answer has been posted already. I have done some research yet still could not find the answer.

    Regarding I'Work 05, I noticed the descriptions mention backwards compatibility with Word documents.

    I am somewhat confused. Can you actually "create" Word documents with the "Page" software in I'Work 05? or is it you can only open/view them?

    The reason I ask is because a full version of Office 2004 seems to be anywhere from $149.99 to $350.00, while a full version of I'Work 05 is about $49.99.

    My main reason for getting the program would be for Word document creation/functionality.

    Which should I get? Office 2004, or I'Work 05? I do not use Excel at all, but use Word extensively.

    Thankyou all for the time spent reading this , and your replies are much appreciated.

    Yes, you can create documents in Word format. However, if iWork functions as AppleWorks does, the compatibility isn't always 100% both ways. Often times fonts, spacing, and formatting aren't identical when a document is created in Word and opened in AppleWorks, or vice versa. If you are looking for 100% compatibility and work with Word documents frequently, I would strongly suggest investing in Office Mac. I continue to use AppleWorks for most projects, but if I need to create or work with an MS Office document, I use Office.
