The information in this article applies to:


When you open a Word 6.0 for the Macintosh document containing one or more pictures or OLE objects into Word for Windows, the following message appears in place of the image:

   Use Word 6.0c or later to view Macintosh picture.


Word 6.0 and 6.0a for Windows cannot interpret the manner in which a graphic is saved in a Word 6.0 for the Macintosh document. Word 6.0c can interpret and display these graphics.


You can obtain Word 6.0c for Windows by calling the Microsoft Sales and Information Center at (800) 426-9400. If you are outside the United States, contact the Microsoft subsidiary for your area. To locate your subsidiary, see the Microsoft World Wide Offices Web site at:
