You can do it the same way you save it as RTF file, just rename it. Word will understand the RTF format is used and will show the correct format.

Note that this is considered bad practice, however, and it is better to just save it as RTF file (i.e, like in xxxyyyzzz.rtf) which will automatically open with Word if Word is installed.

well as per my opinion you should save it in .RTF only as there are few ways to save it in .DOC but it will need office library to installed in your application which will create burden on your application so I would insist you to save it as RTF and open it in word.

Do you have any special requirement to save it as DOC? if so than we can probably find out solution to it as a workaround or permanent
