Does anyone know how to fix Microsoft Word for Mac and the creation of .doc.hqx files

My Microsoft Office for Mac keeps turning my .doc documents into .doc.hqx documents that are unreadable. Does anyone have any solutions? Thanks!

Go to "Word... Preferences... Save..." and choose "Save Word files as ... Word 97-2004 Document (.doc)"

First, save a word file with the .doc extension. ("Sample.doc")

Then, archive the word file as a binhex archive (Stuffit Deluxe should have this option; if not check for other archive creators) which will give your file a .hqx extension. ("Sample.doc.hqx")

Note, I don't think there is a binhex expander available for windows, so if you are looking for cross platform compatibility, you should use .zip or .sit.

Forgive my last comment. I assumed based on the title that you were asking how to create a .doc.hqx file.

Do what Jim says.
