Default Tables lose formatting when opening Word 2002 with Word 97 doc

Hi,
On an network server is Windows 2000. If a table is created with Windows
XP/office 2002 machine for some reason when it is opened with a Windows
98/office 97 sr2 machine the formatting of the tables changes.

I have a mixed environment and don't appear to have such problems.

Anybody know what i can do to fix the problem?

Thanks.

Hi Dh,

98/office 97 sr2 machine the formatting of the tables changes.

A *lot* of table functionality has been added to Word since Word 97 was
current. It's not at all surprising that the table layout of formatting
might change when a document created in Word 2002 is opened in Word 97. One
thing that could help would be to disable newer functionality
(Tools/Options/Save) when working in Word 2002 if you know you're going to
be sharing the documents.
