How to Submit a Document in Word Format


Submitting a document in Word format is simply a matter of making sure the document is saved in the proper Word format if need be and then following the necessary steps to get it to the party requesting the Word document. If you are submitting it via email or other web page, save it in the Word format, either "Word 2007" or "Word 97 to 2003," requested by the company.

  • Finish your document by doing a final edit of it, ensuring there are no misspellings or grammatical errors.

  • Save your document in one of two ways. If you already have a saved copy, simply click the blue disk icon located along the top of the document to save your recent changes. If you don't already have a saved version, click the big office button icon in the upper-left corner of the screen for Word 2007. For all other versions, find the word "File" in the upper-left corner of the screen and click it. In both cases, proceed by clicking "Save As." A box opens with the cursor automatically in the "File name" field. Name your document, leaving the extensions ".doc" or ".docx" alone. Click the "Save" button.

  • Log on to the Internet and access either the website page that you need to submit the document to or log on to your email, whichever applies.

  • Navigate to the webpage field that asks you to insert your document. The "Browse" button will usually be to the right of this. Click it, and it will open a box. If you are in your email program, start a new email and fill in the "To" section with the person's or business's email address. Fill out the subject line. To finish submitting the document to a web page, follow step 5. If you are submitting it via email, follow step 6.

  • Choose the folder where your Word document is located. Find the document and click it. Click "Open," and the path to the document location will insert itself into the webpage field. Follow the screen prompts to finish submitting your Word document.

  • Click the paperclip icon in the upper rows near your new email. A window will open for you to find and choose your Word document. Navigate to where your document is stored and click it. Click the "Attach" or "Insert" button. Finish filling out the body of your email, and the email is now ready to submit your Word document.

Tips & Warnings

  • Always submit your document in a "Word 97-2003" version to prevent delay of processing if you aren't sure if the recipient has the latest version of Word. If the recipient does have the latest version of Word, he will be able to read the "Word 97-2003" format.
  • Make sure when attaching your document to a webpage or an email that you are attaching the correct one. It can be embarrassing to send a person or business the wrong document.
