>>Sella Rush said: "For graphics-heavy documents, there is a significant
disadvantage in Word 6, which stored all graphics as metafiles and inflated
the document file size tremendously. Word 97 handles graphics much more

Is this why Word 97 crashes when I try to save a one-page graphic-laden
file down to Word 7.0 or Word 6.0 format?

If I take the graphic out and save it using WordDraw or some other
application such as Paint, can I then save the Word 97 file as Word 6.0 and
reinsert the graphic? I'm going to try that anyway. I have a series of 30
pages in a graphic-heavy user guide that were created in Word97. I want to
be able to print out copies from the Word 6.0 program I have at home for
work samples, if necessary. Lots of work, but I don't want to have to keep
photocopying samples, or e-mail copies to folks who can't open them in
older versions of Word.

Thanks. ... off to experiment ... check back with you in a while ...
