Problems between MSWorks and MSOffice
by thecuriousone - 5/15/05 8:12 AM
Hi All- I purchased a reforbished Emachines 3256 that came installed with microsoft works. I create documents in this format, I even save them as .doc files but they are unreadable by my office machine which is loaded with Microsoft office (this was a real issue the day I completed my final to be printed off at the office). why is this? I either get a dialog box indicating that MS Office cant read the file or a dialog box asking me which program I want to use to open this. I've tried opening in wordpad but all I get is characters. I would have thought that this would be almost transparent. I appreciate any help that anyone can offer.
