    Hi all... A little help if someone has the time, please

    I had created a document on my home computer and e-mailed it to myself at work to print out. When I try to open it, word pops open and a box pops up that says File Conversion - select the encoding that makes your document readable. There's a bunch of jibberish in the box. No matter what I select, it's unreadable.

    I know I have different versions of word at both of my computers. Is there any way to make it readable, or am I out of luck? Thanks again!

    Save the file at work as Word 2000 .doc and then you should be able to open it at home
