What if my recipient does not have the necessary software to open the file?
You can send the file in PDF or XPS format, which maintains the appearance of your file, but the file cannot
easily be changed — meaning your recipient cannot edit the file. Alternatively, you can suggest that the
recipient download an Office program viewer from http://office.microsoft.com; a viewer can, for example,
help an Office 2007 user open an Office 2013 file. Finally, you can suggest that the recipient use the
appropriate Office Web App, available in SkyDrive; see Chapter 4.
