Ways to View Microsoft Word Documents

Some information on this site is delivered in files that were generated using Microsoft's Word 2003 (.doc files). This is a convenient format for those that use word. You can either use Wordpad or Word Viewer 2003.

Where do I find...?

Windows® computers are supplied with Wordpad. Wordpad may not show the Word 2003 documents as they were designed and meant to be viewed. However, if you are running a Windows computer, you already have it and can use it right away. It can be found under the Accessories folder - i.e. START / PROGRAMS / ASSESSORIES / WORDPAD.

Word Viewer 2003 will allow you to view the Word 2003 documents as they were designed and meant to be viewed. Word Viewer 2003 lets you open Word 2003 documents and documents created with all previous versions of Microsoft Word for Windows® and Microsoft Word for Macintosh. In addition to Word document files (.doc), you can also open files saved in the following formats:

  • Rich Text Format (.rtf)
  • Text (.txt)
  • Web Page formats (.htm, .html, .mht, .mhtml)
  • WordPerfect 5.x (.wpd)
  • WordPerfect 6.x (.doc, .wpd)
  • Works 6.0 (.wps)
  • Works 7.0 (.wps)
  • XML (.xml)

Word Viewer 2003 is available for free as a download from Microsoft by clicking HERE.
