How do I send attachments in Word format

Specs: Windows 31.08.2009
I have scanned a document and sent it via hotmail. Apparently the recipients want it in Word format. I have Windows XP. Any advice as to how I change the format to send please.

Import the document into Word and then save as a .doc file.

Attach that file to your email.

It may depend on the version too. Ask them to be specific as to the version of word and the file extension maybe too.
I agree that common text may be sent as a .doc or rtf if you saved it in some word processing software.

You may have to get some other word processing software too in order to convert. I'd consider openoffice if you have no suitable word processing. Just be sure to "SAVE AS" a type that they want.

I expect your recipients want a true Word document, not one that has a scanned photo of one.

Use your OCR feature (came with the scan software), convert it to (presumably) RTF (Rich Text Format) format, open it in Word, proofread for any errors, and "Save as.." a Word document.

In other words, they want you to do the work (for all recipients), instead of you passing on the work to each and every one of them.

One could send an image on a word document.
