I used your product to convert a PDF file to Word and I am using Office 2003. All went well until I gave the converted file to a co-worker who has a previous version of Office. The output my co-worker saw looks like a postscript output.


The problem here is that users with Office 2003 will create Word 2003 (XML) files. Word 2003 files are NOT compatible with previous versions of Word. In other words, old Word versions cannot directly open them.

The solution here is a simple one: as soon as the file is converted, go to “Save As…” and in file format choose “Word Document” instead of the default “XML Document”. Word will then save the file as an ordinary Word file that can be viewed by users with older versions of Word.
