    The computer I am currently using has Microsoft works, useless in my opinion. When I create a document in the works word processor, and then try to send it to someone who does not have Works, it opens on their computer as a mish-mash of squares, symbols, letters, etc.
    I tried saving it in another format, but the same result occured. Is there a solution to this other than spending a few hundred dollars on Office or Word? Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Save it as a Rich Text Format file type (.rtf) or you can also have them install the converter which allows Word users to open up Works files.
