If you want to save documents in MS Office formats automatically you need to change the defaults. Go to Tools>Options and in the left hand pane expand the + sign against General, then Load/Save and in the bottom boxes set text documents to Word 97/2000/XP. Similarly you can change spreadsheets to Excel and Presentations to PowerPoint.
