Open up word, click the orb, word options, save, change to document format to word 97-2003, to default all saved documents to old doc format.

This can also be done for excel to save in old xls rather that xlsx and to change default language and spell checker.

Hi. I have tried changing the options but it does not work. It is more complicated than that. I think I have found a solution on another forum but it means changing the registry which scares me a bit. Thanks for all replies
