Windows 7: win 7-64 comptability with office 2003

win 7-64 comptability with office 2003

I installed open office and after a few months I deleted it to return to office 2003.
Now if I create a word doc and try to email it I get a message that it can't find my email program. I finally printed it then scanned it and saved it as a PDF file ant then I could send it. I sure wish I could figure this out. I may need a 2003 service pack installed as I do not have it. I am trying hard to save the money that a newer office program costs. I really do not want to go back to Open Office as I had problems with it.
many thanks
Conrad

Are you saving it to be compatible with all versions of office ?
What program are you using for email ? Did you set it up ? I always recommend using your isprovider or something like yahoo. That way you can use it anywhere, anytime. All you have to do is sign in, anywhere in the world.

You sure went thru a lot of trouble to send this document. Why do you not just save it and then attach it to the mail. Since I have no Office 2003, that's the best advice I can give you.

Sir "addram" I'm using win live mail. I'm saving it as a word doc. What do you suggest I save it as ? That may be my
problem, I know just enough to cause myself trouble. I'm using FEA.net from west coast ISP and do not want to change but now I just may consider it.

Wordpad, which you find in All Programs > Acessories,is a mini Word. Files are saved in .rtf (rich text format) and can be opened by Word. It is a good alternative for simple text documents.
