PC can't read .doc from Apple mac

  Macnut 17:02 09 May 2008

I have a PC with Windows Vista & Microsoft Office 2003. I have no problem sending or receiving documents &/or attachments from any computers except one: an Apple mac. My friend sends me .doc documents as attachments One sent page arrives as 58 pages - the original text lost somewhere in the middle. My PC wants to convert it to something but nothing helps. Can anyone help?

I use a Mac as my primary machine. I create hundreds of word docs in MS Word for Mac which I email or send to other machines with no problem, so it seems unlikely the issue is a Mac one.

What is it that your machine wants to convert it too?

What version of Word does your friend have on his Mac or is he using something like Open Office?
