Are you using a newer version of Word at school then the version you have at home? If so you will have to do a save as, then click on the Save As Type options and select a version that is compatble with what you're using at home.

Not really, but most schools offer new Office versions for real cheap. usually less than $50

When you save your document, do a save as and it will let you save as an older 2000 format that will be compatable with your home version.
