Data Print


I wrote a paper on an IBM computer and edited it on my MAC at home. I went back to the IBM to print and I could not open the document from the floppy disk. Both computers had microsoft word, but different versions. When I try to open it, it says to make sure that it is a valid word document. How can I open it without rewriting it? Please help me it is extremely important! Thank You very much.

Be sure that you open Word on your computer, minimize and go to floppy.

You should be able to open the document then.

If sucessful, save on your pc.

Than print the document.

If not sucessful, than the IBM unit cannot read MAC documents and may have to print it on the MAC PC.
