E-Mailed Word Docs Won't Open

  steviegee 09:58 22 Oct 07

I have e-mailed word docs from my home pc to my work pc but when I try to open them they are all gobbledegook. Any ideas why? Thanks. (Office 2007 at home and Office 2003 at work).

Try saving them as Word 2003 documents. (File Save As & change the file type) The default in 2007 isn`t backward compatible.

Ok so I can't do anything with the file I have sent?

Unfortunately I don't have full internet access. Is it a big file? Could it be e-mailed to me via the yellow envelope?
