Hello,
I am looking for the file format of Writer when a document is saved as an MS Word doc, was wondering where I can possibly find this.


Thanks


Nate

It sounds like what you really want is the DOC format.

Problem 1: This is not published by MS so it is a lot of trial and error.

Problem 2: It is not documented of which I am aware.

You might find the format here:
