View Full Version : typing a word document

Hiya everyone,

Hope someone can help.

I have not got Microsoft Word on my computer, but need to type out a CV using Microsoft Word for an employment agency (to be able to register online).
Is there any way of doing this without having to buy the software itself.
I have only got Microsoft Works and they wont accept this.

Best regards

Well you could knock a CV out in Wordpad but it would look crap.

Get Open Office and save the CV as a .doc file for MS Office 2000

Openoffice will do the job just fine.

Install it, and run Open Office Writer, when you save your dcouments don't save them as standard Openoffice doc's - save them as Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP docs.

There is an option to tell Openoffice to always save in Microsoft default file types - I think it is in the Preferences menu.

They are readable by Microsoft Word and for most circumstances will be spot on with the formatting too.
