Word 2003 version compatibility

Hi there-

I'm using SAS version 9.1.3 to generate RTF reports using 'proc report' and 'ODS RTF'. However, the reports generated are saved in version 2007 as I have Office 2007 in my system. There is a problem with pagination where the text is wrongly truncated when opened in word 2003 version. Is there any way I can produce these reports in word 2003 compatible version? Any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks!!!

In MS Word, do Office Button --> Save As --> Word 97 - 2003 Document .

Thanks David. Is there a way to generate them directly from SAS?

Nick,

No, you cannot generate the MS Word binary file format directly from SAS.
