    Microsoft Windows for Nokia Lumia


    Hi,
    I want to edit my Microsoft word document in my Nokia Lumia 630. But I received the following message:Can't edit This file is saved as word 97-2003 document and can't be edited.
    Thank you for your help.
    Regards,
    Hussain

    The 97-2003 format is really old. Go back to your computer, re-save it in a newer format, and try editing it again.

    As requinix says, it might not be your mobile phone that is the problem...it could be the file format.

    Can you transfer the document somewhere and then save it as a newer format? Try emailing it to yourself or something, then opening it on a new computer with an updated version of Word. Then try opening it on your phone again.

    If you have access to a computer that has MS word 2007 or later you can open the file on there, once there save the file as ".docx" and upload it to SkyDrive so you can edit on your phone. This is because the up until 2003 the file format was .doc and since 2007 the file format is .docx
