    Is there any way to configure Word 2010 so that by default, all new documents are saved as .DOC files, readable and editable bu those with Word 2003. Similar idea for Excel.

    Howard,

    I don't know about 2010 but in 2007 you can goto the Office button -> Word Options {button at the bottom} -> Save.
    The first item is Save files in this format: Use the dropdown and select: Word 97-2003 Document (*.doc). Then Click OK.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    In Word 2010 go to File | Options | Save. Then the same as posted earlier for Word 2007.

    Wonderful, it works in Excel and Word, our main apps. I work for a NYC Social Services agency and this will be a huge help to them in their rollout of Office 2010.

    Thank you, forum!!!!
