    I am running Microsoft Works XP and have used the Word Processor to create a resume. I have saved the resume to My Documents. I have sent it out as an attachment to e-mail. Those receiving the e-mail say they get an error message that they can not open the program. The receivers usually ask me to resend as a Word Document. As far as I know it was orginally sent as a word document. Does anyone have any idea of what is wrong and how to fix it???

    To clarify the above, you need to "save as" - "file of type" - Microsoft Word .doc (if your version permits it)

    Companies do not use ar have the ability to convert from Works formats, its not a good idea to use it at all in my view.

    Download Open Office (free Office Suite) and use that instead. It is 99% comnpatable with Word formats and should be much better.

    Such gremlins need to be eliminated if you want your resume to be read, as far as possbile.
