If you do not have Microsoft Word, you must save your work as a rich text file/format.
On the Tool Bar of your word processing document.
Under FILE go the Save as button
A screen/box labeled Save as will appear
File Name here you will name the document
you are working on
Now hit the save button.
Note: Microsoft Office 2007 – If you are using this new version of Word you may need to save your documents as Microsoft Office 2003 documents with the .doc rather than the .docx extension. If you are using Microsoft Works or WordPerfect word processing program, save your file and change the “save file as” to Rich Text Format. This will allow your document to be opened by your instructor using any word processing program.
