When trying to saving Word documents received from others (so original Word version is unknown) using the Word 6.0/95 save format, Word 2002 hangs without saving the file - every time I try this save option.

Microsoft's Knowledge Base acknowledges a problem when saving to *.rft format when the original file format was Word 6.0/95, but makes no mention as to whether this problem also exists when saving to the Word 6.0/95 format.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? - and hopefully found a cure for it.

Saving to Word 6.0/95 is essential for me to enable others with whom I share files for compatibility.
