Hi, My friend has Windows 7 and is using Microsoft Word Processor to type his essay. When he tries to email it using the envelope icon he gets an error message. Is this because it is automatically trying to use Outlook Express, which he hasn'r got?

You can save as doc in Works and in most case there shouldn't be any format changes but as wiz-king states it depends on how old Works is. IMO Works is not very good and LibreOffice, which is free, is better.

Thank you. My friend's laptop is W7 do should be okay. I notice that Open Office can open Word docs but not vice-versa. Is this the same with LibreOffice?

It depends what it is saved as. It is safer to save as a Word document if you know the other person has Word.

LibreOffice is effectively the follow on from OpenOffice.

Works and W7 is a bit unusual are you sure that it is works?

Hi, yes Im pretty sure. Im honestly really sorry for all the questions but i just want to clear something up- You cannot save a doc as a Microsoft Word document if you are using Open Office or Libre Office?
