You need to do a Save As and change the format to a 97-2003 format. The
..docx format is new to Office 2007.

..docx is the new Word 2007 file format. If your coworkers don't have
Word 2007 yet, then you should "save as" to the Word 97-2003 .doc
format, or your coworkers can install the Office 2007 compatibility pack
from
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
to allow their older Office programs to open Office 2007 files.
