  • Microsoft Word 2000 Standard Edition

This article was previously published under Q247186


When you use the Send To command on the File menu, the current document is attached as a Word 2000 document even if you saved the file in a non-Word 2000 format.

NOTE: This problem occurs when you send to any of the following:

  • Mail Recipient
  • Routing Recipient
  • Public Folder
  • Fax Recipient (Class 1 Fax Modems Only)


This behavior is by design in Microsoft Word and occurs when the Mail as attachment check box is selected.

To view the Mail as attachment check box, click Options on the Tools menu, and then click the General tab.


To send a file in a non-Word 2000 format, save the file in that format and then attach the file to your mail or fax message.


In Word 2000, this feature also applies to files that are saved as previous versions of Word unless your default save is set to that version.

For example, if you open a Word 6.0 document and click Send To on the File menu, the file is sent in Word 2000 format, unless your default save option (on the Tools menu, click Options and click the Save tab) is set to Word 6.0/95.
