Is microsoft works word processor the same as MS Word document?
I'm trying to apply for a job but they ask me to send the resume in a single MS Word document. My computer has Microsoft Works Word Processor and my resume is on that. Is that the same?

No, but Works Word Processor CAN produce an MS Word document. Do this: 1. Click the File->Save As menu item. 2. Down in the Save as Type list box, select Word 97-2003 (*.doc) Document. 3. Continue with the save. Hope that helps.

They're similar, but Word is considered business software and has many, many more features than Works. Works is intended for a home application. Also, the file a Works document would have an extension of .wks and a Word doc would be .doc. The company probably could not open a document you create in Works. -MM
