Have just installed MS office pro. 2007 in place of 97, and now find that attachments that I send, are arriving as "Gobbledy-gook".

I check them before I send, and they open perfectly, so there must be something that I'm missing.

Please!, has anyone a solution to this problem.

Are these attachments in Word 2007?
Try saving them as an earlier version.

Office 2007 uses a format that cant be opened by older versions. When you save it, save as a 2003 doc and any version can open it.

Many thanks for all your help. I still have 97 installed on a separate drive,so I can use that for attachments.
