The file formate of MSW 8.0 is different than MSW 6.0. MSW *.0 will allow you to save it in the older format. Look under "save As..."

You can also install a file converter for word 6.0 that will allow it to open/convert Word 7/8 documents.  This is easier than having to remember or force others to do a Save As... every time.  The file is called "Wrd97cnv.exe" and is freely available from the Microsoft web site (www.microsoft.com).

Unfortunately, there is no 16bit Excel viewer at all, let alone for reading Excel 7/8 files.
