Yes, I have to save the files as Word documents, because I will be sendiing out stuff like resumes and cover letters, and I can’t aford to confuse the HR secretaries with files they have to figure out how to open.
The Open Source web page says this:
This sounds like you would have to do some kind of conversion to open one of their files in Word, or to open an original Word document in it. Is this correct?
Is there a “Save as filetype …” option so I can spare the recipient the issue of figuring out how to open it. I am operating under the assumption that MS Office is a nearly universal business standard, whether it should be or not. I am also assuming your average secretary is going to be pretty much hopelessly lost if the file requires anything more than a double click to open it.
