I’ve been using Office 2007 on my laptop and enjoying it for the most part. However, no one I collaborate with uses it so the whole new file format thing has been a pain for me. Since everyone’s time is short, getting them to download & install the adaptors for office 2003 is a non-starter for me. So up until yesterday I was hitting “Save as” on all new documents I created to forcing them into the older file format. Found a simpler way to do this…Yippee!
How to change Office 2007 Default File Format for Saving:
- Click the Office Button
- Select Options on the bottom right hand side
- Select the Save options from the left-hand navigation
- Change the default to 97-2003 file format
- Rinse and repeat for all of the other office apps you use.
