    You need to save the document as a Word 97 - 2003 format or have the recipient install Download details: Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats. When you change a docx document just save it when you are finished with all of your changes. Then do a 'save as' to the word 97 - 2003 format. That will save a .doc file. If you wish to change the default file format for Word go to the Office orb then the Word options button and then the Save section.

    I don't know if there is a keyboard shortcut for Save As in Word 2007. (There isn't one in Word 2003.)

    In Word 2007, you can find the Save As option on the "Office button" menu, where most of the old File menu commands have migrated.

    "a keyboard shortcut for Save As in Word 2007"

    F12 does it.

    (Just a side note: F12 is the keyboard shortcut for File Save As in earlier versions of Word too)

    Actually, I don't use the Function keys much myself. And when on the odd occasion that I do, I ALWAYS <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30> have to remember to press the F Lock key first (the F keys have other uses with a multimedia keyboard).
