Office 2007 is new and strange..
The first thing that you should do when you get Office 2007 is to tell Word and Excel to save files in the .doc and .xls file format (respectively) instead of the .docx and .xlsx formats with which most people will be confused by when they can’t open it. This is because those new XML document formats are supported by previous versions of Microsoft Office.
To tell Word and Excel to save in the old version as a default. Start Word/Excel and for each one separately, click on the glowing orb with a windows logo in the top left corner of the window. Then click the Options button at the bottom right of the popup window. Once in the options, click on Save and choose the file version that ends in: 97-2003 – that is the version that is compatible with the older versions of Microsoft Office that everyone is still using.
FWIW: There is also a converter that you can download from Mircosoft if you need to convert docx to doc or xlsx to xls.
Next… If you are using Outlook – you should show the BCC field in the Message Editor. This has been hidden by default, to unhide the field, follow these steps:
1. From the Outlook toolbar, click New and select Mail Message.
2. A new message window will appear.
3. Go to the Ribbon and select the Options tab.
4. In the Fields section, select Show Bcc.
5. The Bcc field will appear. Place the address(es) you wish to send a blind carbon copy.
