MS Works came pre-installed on my computer. The problem is, whenever I send
an email with attachment that generated from MS Works, the recipient cannot
read the file as it is in code, and cannot be opened. My computer is by
Compaq and is Windows XP edition., but the warranty has expired, so Compaq is
of no help. Anyone have the answer,,,,Please?????

Thank you very much.

MSN is default mail client, I think, as it is installed on my machine,
however, I do not use it. I just read someone else's similar problem and the
response, so I did change the attachment to RTF and sent an email, but I must
have done something wrong, as it came back still encoded. Don't understand
what I am doing wrong. Help???

Thank you very much.

So you created a new message using MSN Mail or at www.hotmail.com using your
name@msn.account and attached a Works file?

(I was *not* suggesting that you should create the Works file in RTF, only
if you were using an RTF formatted message, and then only if you were
creating the message in MS Outlook.)

If you send such a message to yourself, (forget the RTF part) can you open
and read the file?

Do yourself a favor and buy Word or at the very least, the Works Suite that
includes Word. Otherwise it's just going to be a headache for you and the
people you send documents to, and some people aren't going to bother telling
you that they can't read the document or the formatting is all messed up,
they're just going to throw it out. Which is fine unless you're trying to
send out business documents or send a resume or something else that might be
more important to you than to them.

You can choose to save a Works document as a Word document, but it's easy to
forget to do so, and the formatting sometimes gets odd, or other things go
wrong at the receiving end.

Like it or not, Word is the default program. If you're going to need it for
anything but personal use, you might as well buy it and use it.

It has become something of a headache, and the only thing I use it for is
business, so I will either have to upgrade to something else like you
mentioned or use FAX, OR the old fashioned snailmail. I am curious though
about the OpenOffice download, and would that be any solution for my needs at
all?

PBear, I appreciate that and yes, I do know better than to send anything,
especially since a line under his comment was for "live web videos". Thanks
for the thought. And I am still having problems with the attachment. I
changed to RTF format, and saved it in my documents, but when I sent it, a
window popped up saying that no file existed. I don't know much about this
stuff as one can guess. Any suggestions, anyone? Thanks for your help and
the advice.

OH MY God! I asked you to create a test message and send it to me not your
private document. Why do you assume that "Live web video" is X rated? . I'm

Here is what I did. I opened the document in Works, clicked Save As, gave
the file a name, and saved it in my documents. On Save As Type, I clicked
RTF thinking that would work. Since last message, I emailed it to myself and
it did work, except that when I opened it, it was the Works page complete
with toolbar at the top and all. I just didn't think that it would be this
complicated. Is there a save as setting that is readable without sending the
works page? Anyone?

Ok save the document as word 6.0 (.doc) rtf will work also. The problem is
works saves the documents in its own format .wps anyone who does not have
works installed on their computer will not be able to open it. MS Word can
and will open works document but in most cases they have to tell Word to
open the document because it is not set to open works files by default. Your
system is set to open them which is why it opened when changed it to rtf. I
assume you do not have MS Office installed on your system? If you save it as
..doc then most people will be able to open it if they have MS Word.

Ok, I don't have MS Office on my system, and the bad part of it is that the
document is a resume, and everyone has responded in the past by saying they
cannot open and to please send in word format. That is why I asked if there
was a simpler way to save the document so it can be read. So do I understand
correctly that if I change to a (.doc) rtf and they do not have Word that it
still cannot be opened? In any event, I will try that and I thank you for
your time and patience with my question.

Thank you very much.

OpenOffice is very good and does almost everything that MS office does,
(Word/Excel etc).

But the main problem is that because it is slightly different from the way
MS does things it can be quite a learning curve.
If you are prepared to spend a few days learning then OO will do the job
just fine.

There will also be a learning curve moving to Word from Works. :-)

Read Simon's post. Open Office is an alternative to MS Office and is very
good, much better than Works. I have MS Office but I use Open Office to open
corrupted word docs, works great for that, Go ahead and download it, your
Resumes will be much better.

It sounds like your recipients are using MS Office/Word 2002 (XP) or earlier
and need to use:

Works 6.0 Converter for Works and Word Users:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyI...

NB: *You* don't need it:

<QP>
The Works 6.0 Converter converts word processor documents created in
Microsoft Works 6.0 to Microsoft Word and other versions of Works.
Specifically, this converter works with Works 2000, 4.5, and 4.x, and Word
2002, 2000, and 97 on machines running Microsoft Windows® 98, 2000
Professional, Millennium Edition, and XP.

You do not need the Works 6.0 Converter if you already have Works 6.0
installed on your machine.

Which is fine if he's sending letters to the family or something, but he's
trying to submit a resume. I can't imagine anyone is going to be very
impressed with his resume if he says, "here's my resume in an unreadable
format; now go and get yourself a file converter to be able to open it and
read it." If a company is getting a sufficient number of applicants, the
first test is going to be whether the document is submitted properly, and
sending a Works file when they've asked for a Word file is going to fail
that test.

I'd say that he's lucky that anyone has told him that they couldn't open it.

I appreciate the thought, Kelly, and thank you for offering. To be honest, I
am just about tired of this whole MS Works thing. I spent an entire weekend
trying various things to get it to work and it still doesn't. I put it in
..rtf format, .doc format, and just about every other format that shows up on
the drop down list. Pain in the wazoo for sure. I probably will stick to
snail mail or go down the street and pay for FAX service, at least until I
buy a new program. When I started asking questions in the beginning, I was
curious to know if MS had an update or a "fix" that needed to be put in
place. I have seen the conversion dl's but none seem to apply to my system.
But you guys have been extremely helpful and I thank you for your time.

Thank you very much.

If you'll re-read my early posts in this thread you'll see that I was the
one who asked about RTF formatting.

I wasn't referring to or suggesting that you use RTF format in your resume,
but whether you were using RTF format in the email message to which you were
attaching the DOC file, Femluc.

Best of luck.
