Word 2000 viewer for Windows XP

The head of our golf group sends out the monthly schedule in advance using Word 2000 via email. I have no problem opening it since I have Office.
However we have people with Windows XP but dont have Office. I went into Microsoft site and found word viewers but they say for Windows 95 nt etc but not XP. Is there a viewer for Word that I can send to these people with XP?

There may be such on microsoft.com, but for those without Word, they can also use Open Office from http://www.openoffice.org

Your friend may find this usefull since... Open Office can save the Monthly Schedule from Open Office as... a PDF. A PDF would be compatible with a wider range of OSes and machines.

Bob thanks for such a quick reply. It looks to me that it is a beta version and I am reluctant to recommend a beta release. Remember I am the guy you gave heck to for installing SP2 beta and screwing up my machine.

We use it...

Your choice. The PDF function alone would solve your issue now.

At the office, we have some 100+ installs and nothing is happening.

What more can one offer?

Here is a link to download M$ Office/Word 2000 Viewer. Believe me, it WORKS just fine in XP.
