Fax sheet set up using latest version of Word. Document emailed to my computer and then sent on to another computer which uses a later version of Word. The fax sheet then defaults to riginal settings and everything goes skew wiff. Both computers using Windows XP with different versions of Word.Question: Is is possible (or not) to prevent this happening please?

Later versions or Word have a compatibility option - <Save As> Word 97-2003 if you're using Word 2007 or 2010 and the other machine is Office 2003 or earlier.

It may not be a perfect fix, but it's probably as close as you'll get...

EDIT: There are some formatting items that don't seem to save very well to an earlier version of Word, but your later version of Word may indicate what will change....

Microsoft has a comparability pack that may help. There are also fax to word add ons that may help.

You may consider using Word 2010 and export the Fax sheet as a PDF.
