Windows 98 and Windows 2000 file compatibility

  higene 11:05 11 Feb 2003

I saved word 2000 documents on a floppy using Windows 98. On another computer I have Windows 2000 Professional The floppy won't read in Windows 2000 Professional. If I access the floppy drive, the files are listed but they will not load up into word 2000

Try saving them as .rtf (rich text format) and see if this works.

I've used Word 2000 Professional Documents (.doc) in win 98SE and Win 2000 Professional without hitch before. Have you downloaded the latest Windows updates and Service packs for Office?
