Saving as a Microsoft Word file

To save a document as a Microsoft Word file:

  1. First save your document in OOo’s format (.odt). If you do not, any changes you made since the last time you saved will appear only in the Microsoft Word version of the document.
  2. Then click File > Save As. The Save As window appears.
  3. In the Save as type drop-down menu, select the type of Word format you need.
  4. Click Save.
