RWA Contests – Please read

We’ve had a lot of entries in the High Five come in in the wrong file extension. PLEASE only send in .doc NOT .docx

This is clearly stated in the entry guidelines.

Managers have to send these incorrect entries back for fixing which is time consuming and should be an unneccessary task if entrants took care.

If your Word Progamme automatically saves in .docx  use ‘Save As’ and choose .doc in the list of choices.

The incorrect file often skews your formatting when opened in earlier Word versions.    .doc works for everyone.

Thank-you

  1. I’ve noticed on my version of word when you click “Save As” it comes up with a list which says Word Doc, Word template, Word 97-2003 etc. If people save it as a Word 97-2003 document it will be formatted as .doc not .docx which is for the latest versions only.

    That is probably where there is a bit of confusion as the menu does not state what file extension it will be only the style of document.
