When I receive an email with a word document attached I open and edit it, save it and want to send it back to the sender with my comments.

How do you do this? It works when you forward it

Thanks

1. Right click the attachment

2. Save As

3. Choose where you want to save it on your computer (desktop or documents is common)

4. Open the document

5. Make the changes you want (if you are making corrections, I usually write in red text so they see the difference. You can use the strikethrough font function to draw a line through their wording without deleting it)

6. Save the document

7. Reply to their email

8. Attach the document you made

9. Send the email

10. Give me 500 points. ;-)

Hi Niftyit,
               When u open an attachment in outlook email what u have received.
The file is opened in temporary location and not save any were..So u need to save in ur local drive and do the changes and send it again.

If your using Google drive u can open the file do the changes and send the same..
