Save a file in a different format in Microsoft Office for Mac applications

INTRODUCTION

This article describes how to save a file in the following Microsoft Office for Mac programs. 

Note: A file that is created in Word 2011 or Word 2008 and is saved as .doc rather than .docx displays {Compatibility mode} in the file name. This feature is by design. To avoid the added text in file name, the file can be saved as a .docx file.
