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.
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?
