    a university should have a basic text editing software, which should allow you to save as any other format?

    I assume the organisation has prevented the use of .doc files on the university network on the basis of the university IT security policy? The Word programs must be configured under a policy as by default you would normally be able to "save as" several different formats

    The files can carry macro viruses, many organisations now quarantine all .doc and .xls attachments and manually screen them.

    If that is the case, any conversion of a file type by you on the university network would surely be against the university policy?

    open the RTF in microsoft Word.

    File > Save As > Save as Type (box at the bottom) > Word Document (*.doc).

    Name the file then click save.
