Default open docx format as doc format

I need to convert a set of word documents in docx extension to doc format.



ActiveDocument.SaveAs2(filename,wdFormatDocument97 ) from word 2010 creates a doc format file in protected view mode. Is it possible to save the docx format to doc format with compatibility mode.

Thanks for the support.

Best,
Sashi

Check your system's 'file block' settings. Evidently they're configured to open doc files in protected view. Apart from that, simply use SaveAs - or SaveAs2 - to save the file in the doc format and with a doc extension.
