4.00 5.00



Microsoft Word for DOS versions 4.0 and 5.0 save files as unformatted (ASCII) text and do not prompt you to confirm the loss of formatting if you do the following:

  1. Load an ASCII text file into Word.
  2. Merge in a formatted document.
  3. Save the file.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word versions 4.0 and 5.0. This problem was corrected in Word version 5.5.
