I have a document that someone emailed me that I think was written on a MAC.  The file has a .doc extension on it but when I try to open it up it reads at the top "(This document must be converted with Bin Hex 4.0)"  How can I get this to open on my PC and what can I tell the person that emailed it to me to save it as next time so that I don't have this problem.

Thanks alot!

Binhex is a compression/encryption format kinda like .zip. You will be able to uncompress it by using Stuffit Expander for PC which you can obtain from www.aladdinsys.com

Oh yes in the future you can have them save it as a .zip or any other format assuming you have stuffit expander.

Awesome!  I actually used Winzip and just extracted it.

Thanks again!
