Ello! I have Microsoft Word 2007, and it works perfectly fine on my computer. However, If I ever email it or transfer it likewise, the document turns into a bunch of symbols. As a side note, the computer that I transfer to has Word 2003. It might have something to do with it, but I'm not sure.
Thanks!

In Word2007 you can save your files (.docx) in Word2003 format (.doc) - "Save as" > and roll down where it says "Save as Type". You can also store the file in .pdf format if you install this add-on in your Word2007. Then the recipient can read the file with any PDF reader (e.g. Adobe).
